    I totally agree with your statements about OUI.etc

    Beyond that I think your rant is coming off the rails

    He's been accused of a heinous crime, he gets his day in court to defend against the allegations and I'm positive we will hear about contributing factors like bikes in formation/following each other too closely, bikes colliding and going down vs bikes that were hit by the driver of the truck

    I rode for years and there are tons of shitty car/truck drivers out there.....there are also a lot of really shitty riders

    What we dont know is whether or not the driver/truck struck any of the bikes or whether bikes went down because someone in the lead swerved, went down/collided and caused those behind them to in turn go down because they had no where to go.....

    If the guy had his CDL and it was not revoked by the state then the employer is under no obligation/legal requirement not to hire him....if you're going to go down that road then you better be prepared to tell us all why no one ever convicted of a crime should be permitted to hold a job after they have done their time/paid restitution.

    One of the survivors who was on the local news said the truck came over the hill in the wrong lane and hit them head on. Otherwise, you'd have to believe that 10 riders, none of them young or inexperienced, all went over the hill in the wrong lane and hit the truck. Doesn't matter how close together they were, he was on their side of the road. He owns it.
    Any trucking company worth a damn should run a license check on a new hire, at the very least.

    "Mass. RMV head resigns in aftermath of deadly N.H. motorcycle crash

    The head of the Massachusetts motor vehicle division has resigned after her agency failed to terminate the commercial driving license of a man whose collision with a group of motorcyclists on a rural New Hampshire road left seven bikers dead.

    Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, 23, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to seven counts of negligent homicide.


    Massachusetts Department of Transportation Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack said in a statement that the state Registry of Motor Vehicles failed to act on information provided by the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles about a drunken driving arrest involving Zhukovskyy.


    Pollack said the arrest should have cost him his commercial driving license. As a result, she accepted the resignation of Erin Deveney.


    Manny Ribeiro, who survived the crash, said the resignation was just one of many revelations about the driver that indicated the crash could have been prevented. But Ribeiro said it also felt ‘‘like someone was running around from the problem.’’

    Motorcycle club leader says resignation of RMV head over N.H. crash is ‘ridiculous’ - The Boston Globe

    Zhukovskyy’s refusal of a chemical test during his May 11 arrest on suspicion of OUI in Connecticut would normally trigger the suspension of his commercial driver’s license in Massachusetts. But that didn’t happen.
    The incident was first reported by WCVB-TV. In February, Zhukovskyy was arrested at a Denny’s restaurant in Baytown along Interstate 10, near the spot of his rollover. Police were called to the restaurant around 2 a.m. after Zhukovskyy showed strange behavior while seated at the counter, Dorris said.
    --------
    In a statement Tuesday night, Stephanie Pollack, the transportation secretary in Massachusetts, said “the RMV had not acted on information provided by the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles about a May 11 incident that should have triggered termination of this individual’s commercial driver’s license.”

    Pollack added that Connecticut “failed to provide sufficient information” about Zhukovskyy’s arrest through the federal system for Massachusetts to record the violation.

    A spokesman for the Connecticut DMV didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday morning, and Pollack’s office said she wasn’t available for an interview.

    The Connecticut DMV contacted the Massachusetts registry about Zhukovskyy on May 29, but the message “did not contain sufficient information to automatically input Zhukovskyy’s OUI into his Massachusetts driving record,” Pollack said in Tuesday’s statement.

    The Connecticut information did, however, generate a notification for a manual review, which registry personnel in Massachusetts did not conduct, officials said.

    “Which is why the May 11 chemical test refusal does not appear on Zhukovskyy’s driving record and why his license had not been suspended in Massachusetts,” Pollack said Tuesday.

    She said Jamey Tesler, the state Transportation Department’s former chief operating officer, will take over as acting registrar and will lead a review to “ensure the RMV acts as quickly as possible on any information shared by other states,” she said.

    Police found that Zhukovskyy was carrying a crack pipe when they patted him down, Dorris said. He was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

    New Hampshire authorities haven’t alleged that Zhukovskyy was drunk or high during last week’s deadly crash.

    This is great. Right now she has to out liberal all the other democrats, but if she wins the primary she will have to dial back the rhetoric. I can see Trump using that film clip in his reelection adds.

    Trump could have a field day with this tragedy by pointing to it as consequences of what happens when we fail to enforce immigration/naturalization laws

    Dude should have been punted from the country/green card revoked first time he had a major driving issue......now 7 people are dead and 3 more seriously injured.......

    Yes, yes, yes! I tell people about SMIDSY all the time. I used it about a dozen times today going to and from Provincetown. People actually look up and take notice.

    Is there a Dept. head in any administration that actually has a clue or any experience about what they have been appointed to run? Nepotism, cronyism, and incompetence are so disgustingly rampant in this state and the end result is what we have now. Run like hell to save face and save your fat pension too. This way the local watering holes will be kept in business until you take the eternal dirtnap like these poor seven have. You notice how Faker has said nothing about his RMV Director bailing. I don't care that he is heading on a business trip or whatever you want to call it across the pond. Isn't it ironic that he is in London at the same time the Red Sox and Yankees are playing there too? You can't tell me this trip wasn't planned well in advance after looking at the Sox schedule.

    I think if his CDL was revoked after the CT DUI he would still have driven.

    After all, isn’t it the point of laws that criminals don’t follow them?

    It's a shame that it took this incident to make light on his past.

    May our brothers rest in peace.
