    Glad everyone escaped any serious injuries! On a side note, the driver will now get another chance to get behind the wheel! Obviously someone smarter than me thinks that these people will change! It is not like the laws do anything to protect our families on the road. I wonder what would happen if this had of been one of those legislators family members?
