Should stiffer penalties be accessed for causing a Terre Haute auto accident?

by fst | April 29th, 2010

WTHI-TV reports that three people suffered injuries in a Terre Haute auto accident at State Road 46 and Poplar. A car was moving from the right lane to the left lane when it was struck by a truck.

The truck struck the vehicle from behind and was traveling at a high rate of speed at the time of the Terre Haute auto accident. Three of the four people in the car were transported to the hospital to be treated for injuries.

The driver of the truck was fined for causing the Terre Haute auto accident.

Do you think a fine is enough of a penalty for causing an accident? Do you think stiffer penalties for negligent driving would have an impact on accident rates?
