the police officer writing the report send the message from the perspective of a car driver
the author of the news piece writes their report from the perspective of the car driver
"the driver did not have time to stop"
was the car driver going over the set speed limit?
had they been going the speed limit would they of had time to stop?
I am not saying to press charges for this driver driving "traffic speed"
but... if the law needs to understand that the accepted deviation of the law is a contributing factor to decreases safety on the streets
