Trees are MUCH more important than people

UK prosecutors recently recommended that 34-year-old William Tait face nothing more than a $4,600 fine for hitting and killing 74-year-old Harry Thompson at a pedestrian crossing and THEN recommended that he face a 2 year jail sentence because he hit a tree during his attempt to flee the scene of the accident. Tait was also driving without either a license or insurance.

Why the difference in the proposed charges? Because, they say, killing Thompson was just "careless" driving while hitting a tree was "dangerous" driving.
