"witnesses said the car was weaving on the road as if the driver was drunk."

What's the penalty in Oklahoma of a hit-and-run versus a DUI?

Unless the driver turns self in, I doubt OHP will find the perp.

It is possible the driver could be charged with hit-n-run, reckless driving, and violating the three-foot passing rule.

The fine for the three-foot rule is no more than $500. Hit-n-run, and reckless are just misdemeanors, unless the perp has other felony predicates.

Cops can't prove DUI. The best chance to recover is civil damages. That's probably iffy. Perp probably doesn't have insurance.

Bicyclists: NIGGERS of the roadway.

Ever wonder why Santa rolls BA, instead of Avery? Safer. More witnesses. BETTER class of people.

Not to let the perp off the hook, Wayne was playing the pathetic gutter troll in spandex, WITHOUT a rear-view mirrot. Typical of most of the spandex'd regulars on Avery.

And, they have the unmitigated GALL to blame Santa for all things that ail bicyclists in this town.

With Sunday morning DRUNKEN drivers on Avery, Who's Afraid of Santa on the BA?

I don't know off hand. But I'll try to look it up on the OSCN page. It's cumbersome, so it will probably be later tonight.
