Unless your not providing more info. I think you might of misinterpreted the poll. Football players are like investments for the schools and are generally on scholarships which restrict them from participating in certain activities which are potentially hazardous, such as other sports, partying, etc. I think that poll may be asking if motorcycling should be added to that list.On our local news, they had a poll saying do you think that Iowa football players should ride motorcycles. This kind of ticked me off. Why are they any different than anybody else?
I think I worded it badly. To me, there is a difference between someone that gets into an "accident" because they got distracted by something/weren't paying attention for a second or something and someone that gets into an accident because they just never pay attention in general and have just been lucky up 'till now. The latter deserves higher punishment IMO. Unfortunately there is no way to actually distinguish between these two types of drivers.There's no such thing as an "accident" between 2 vehicles. They're called collisions, and are always due to one party not paying attention or doing something wrong.
I didn't think there was a need to get technical here, but unless it can be proven that the truck driver intentionally wanted to harm the rider, it would be considered an accident (Both parties did not intend for this collision to occur).There's no such thing as an "accident" between 2 vehicles.
