9 year old Cooper Stock recently died after being struck by a taxi. His uncle, Barron Lerner in a column for the New York Times explains why he believes that reckless drivers should be treated as criminals just like drunk and drugged drivers. Lerner who is a professor of medicine and population health at New York University, is also the author of “One for the Road: Drunk Driving Since 1900” . Lerner compares reckless driving these days to drunk driving prior to 1980. He says that reckless driving “is poorly defined in the law, sometimes poorly investigated by police and almost never results in a criminal charge”.
