Road networks, designs, and, ??? are an entirely different beast.

Do they have more and frequent rest areas? Absolutely, and I get that here things are far and in between, but that doesn't change the fact that driver fatigue is driver fatigue.

He didn't stop at the stop sign, ran it :(
"A sentencing hearing has heard that a semi-truck driver barrelled through a stop sign and caused the deadly Humboldt Broncos bus crash.

An agreed statement of facts submitted as evidence in court says Jaskirat Singh Sidhu was going between 86 and 96 km/h when he drove into a rural Saskatchewan intersection north of Tisdale last April."

I imagine the sentencing will be much greater with that information

how much time does this killer get is the real question, knowing are spineless judges in this country, --not enough-- :swear:

There's been no mention of WHY he ran the stop sign (unless I've missed it).

Sounds like a couple of the families are feeling for the truck driver. Their impact statements could have some influence on the judge's decision.

As much as I would like to see a long prison sentence handed down, more than likely may not happen.

This driver will/(may) have self imposed sentence for the rest of his life. The knowledge that his actions caused the deaths of so many people, plus serious injuries to many more. I can only imagine how that could haunt someone terribly.

Yes, I am aware I called for murder charges either in this thread or the other one.... I was P/O for the families effected.

Again the real question is why did he run the stop sign??? What were the weather conditions like at the time?
Was he distracted or over hours in his log book?

According to person who did physics I re-post earlier, weather wasn't an issue.
As for the other questions only the driver really knows those answers.

The physics video was cute and all but its basis and he wasn't there so he cant say what the road conditions were like at the time.

Should the death toll reflect on the length of his sentence?

How do you know he did not inquire about weather conditions, by the way numbers don't lie... unlike humans.

I don't think so.
It was a single act on the part of the driver. I think the sentences will be served concurrently.

There is no sentence that will satisfy anyone.
I imagine with the severity of the crash, police were able to trace back to ride to prove his log book was correct?

There was nothing to obscure Sidhu’s view of the stop sign, according to the agreed statement of facts. The sun was not in his eyes, the road was not affected by any inclement weather and the intersection was clearly visible before the collision. Sidhu also passed signs indicating that an intersection with a stop sign was ahead.
