Based on my experience, there are very few people who know what "DRT" means. I use it whenever context warrants, and no one knows what the hell I'm talking about.

Ill story, though.....egad.

As in most of these cases, one really can't make a sound conclusion without knowing all of the facts. If the motorcyclist was going 55 in a 55 zone and the u-turner pulled in front of him, then the u-turner is at fault.



If the motorcyclist was going 130 in a 55 and the u-turner pulled out when the motorcyclist was still a block away, then the motorcyclist may well be at fault.



In the media, these stories are virtually always incomplete. When repeated by an advocacy group, they tend to be even more misleading.



The moral of the story: take your time, wait for the facts.



The legal system actually does work pretty well in most situations, which is why we still have the best country and best society in the world (in my humble opinion).

let him sue....everybody else does. it is a clear indication of how many s***** sucking lawyers there are out there. the family of the guy should turn around and counter-sue the idiot that killed him and the lawyer for bringing the suit. add a little pain and suffering to it, take both of them for every penny they got.

Until the at-fault party can conclusively state actual speed he's at-fault no matter what the speed. He entered a NOLO plea because the facts of the case were against him, period. I spent my life surrounded by lawyers (dad and uncles), cops (brother-in-laws) bondsmen (me) and insurance agents (me, again). The rate of speed has an end-effect. It does not allow the at-fault party absolve himself from being guilty of the crime. That's why he NOLO'd. If the guilty party profits from his actions then all hope for the jury trial system in this country are useless.
