My Name is Brittany, and on January 1st 2012 my brother in law was struck by a hit and run driver. He was the designated driver for
the night, and an EMT who was leaving a party hit him, and took off leaving my brother in law to lay in the street dying. He had severe brain injuries
and broken bones. TO THIS DAY the drive has not spent more than 2 days in Jail, while my brother in law has spent more than half of 2012 in the ICU.
The current laws make its advantageous for suspected drunk drivers to flee the scene of a crime, and turn them selves in later. This man, when he
finally does see a court date will be getting off with a slap on the wrist. He will be spending less time in Jail than my brother has already spent in
the ICU. This is not right. Please if you can take 30 Seconds to sign our petition! Once we get 1,000 signatures we will be granted a meeting with
some of our local state representatives so we can talk about getting bills like house bill 227 into effect. This is not just about my brother in law
either, he knows that this will take time, and he probably will not see proper justice but the one thing he asked us, is for us to make sure that this
does not happen again. There are a few other stories (local to us) that we have shared on our website. Thank you!
