Driver convicted in Colorado horn-honking incidentPosted on February 27th, 2013 No comments
If you haven’t yet seen the actual video of the incident, it’s really remarkable.
Kudos to the Colorado Highway Patrol (and the prosecutors) for actually investigating; and bringing the driver to justice.
According to the Daily Camera, driver “James Ernst pleaded guilty to two counts of harassment — a Class 3 misdemeanor — and two counts of improper use of a horn — a traffic offense”, and received 12 months probation, including a court-ordered anger management class.
I’m starting a new tag today, intentional, to highlight intentional mis-deeds; which are both far less common than unintentional (but still dangerous) behavior, and in some types of cases can be hard to prove. Nothing to do with this case — nobody was injured — I’ve also always wondered about insurance policy’s “intentional acts exclusion” — if an insured person intentionally runs over somebody with their car, is their auto insurance off the hook for damages?
