I don't take it lightly when someone hits an animal either, but I was doing the speed limit the night I hit that puppy...sometimes it just can't be helped. That's not the only animal to run out in front of me, it's just the only one I haven't been able to stop in time for. My dog will run out on the road if she gets a chance...we too take extra precautions to make sure she doesn't get the chance...sometimes dogs can be quicker than we think, but if my dog got out and got hit by a car, I'd still blame myself, not the poor driver that just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time...unless they did it on purpose...but that's animal cruelty and a whole different matter. It is against the law to deliberately run over an animal...the only problem is catching the people that do it.
Too lazy to even think of a siggy
