I was shocked to read in the Watertown Daily Times that a 29-year-old woman who was texting while driving ran a stop sign and took the life of another woman, and she was only sentenced to probation and community service. Is that all a life is worth?
At 29, a person should have the sense of responsibility to know better than to do something so dangerous. What does this say to young people who are told to obey the law? Will they take rules seriously if there is so little punishment for the infraction?
I am so sorry for members of the victim’s family. I cannot imagine how they must feel.
