Kelly Ashton, representing Cycle Colorado, spoke in support of the bill. She told the committee about her son, who while on his motorcycle, was struck by a car trying to beat a yellow light. She expressed concern that a four point license violation is not a sufficient penalty for seriously injuring another person.
Marissa Ashton, representing Cycle Colorado, spoke in favor of the measure. She recapped the same incident as her mother, the previous witness, and the need for accountability.
Jordan Ashton, representing Cycle Colorado, testified in support of the bill. As the victim of the motorcycle accident described by the previous witnesses, he stressed the need for a law that better penalizes drivers who cause serious bodily injury.
