Reckless driver sues parents of the boy he killed

See also

One of the problems with compulsory bike helmet laws is that they inadvertently make it easier to pin blame on cyclists for negligent behavior in the wake of accidents, even though in reality reckless motorists are to blame for a large majority of cyclist-motorist collisions.

A particularly galling example: A man who killed a 14-year-old cyclist recently brought suit against the boy's parents for failing to ensure the boy was wearing a helmet. The man, who has a drunk-driving record and was doing 80 mph in a 45 mph zone at the time of the accident, claims the incident has caused him emotional distress.
