Real Justice

Updated on April 8, 2021

Possible Solution?

Almost a year and half ago I was involved in a simple accident that should have been over and done with... or so I thought. Unfortunately I am still in ongoing physiotherapy that was just reduced to twice a week and I would never have forseen living the nightmare that played out in our lives.

We were sitting in a vehicle on the highway at a complete stop when all of a sudden we were hit from behind by a driver who says that he "Fell asleep". It was hard to believe since it was stop and go traffic but he immediately admitted to it to the police so we were just happy to hear that he at least would be found guilty. We did however suspect the cell phone was his issue since he had a major problem putting down the phone and continually texted before I was taken to the hospital.

I was the only one injured but there were 3 of us in the vehicle. He was charged with careless driving and impaired (Because he admitted to falling asleep they said it was impaired). As much as this may be major charges that have been laid against the driver, he still has the opportunity to hire a lawyer that can play a system and possibly get him off the charges.

How does that make this driver really realize what he has done. The moment the ambulance left carrying me to the hospital was the moment that he no longer had to think about me. From that moment he had no idea how and what he did to impact my life.

I believe that if someone causes another any form of pain and suffering then they should have to accompany that victim to a day in their life to see what the impact really was. So many times I wished he was given the opportunity to witness the pain that he has caused in my life so that he may actually decide to stop .. have a coffee..and Not drive ever again if he was overtired. Instead he has no responsibility to it.

The laws need to change and even if he is given the opportunity to reduce his charges he should still be made accountable for his actions. A judge should have the right to a new law - The Take a walk in my shoes Act! He should be given the right to make a victim feel like what they have gone through is not forgotten and the person responsible a day to recognize what their actions have really cost.

I forgive the driver that did this too me, I only wish that he really knew what it was that he actually did to my life. We have to find new ways of making people responsible and maybe this will be a new way to make a change.
