Kudos to Burlington MPP and Share The Road founder Eleanor McMahon, whose bill to amend the HTA received all-party unanimous support in passing second reading in the legislature this past week.

The amendment, if adopted, would significantly increase the penalty for those whose careless driving results in the death of a vulnerable road user.
