The battle resumes

This is also Part 6 in the About me series
and
a supplement to Chapter 4 in my Horse stories book

For the "battle," this is page 3 of 3 of the Trouble series. [Back to part 1] 2009-2012 Dangerous roads, or [part 2] 2013 Dog attack

This page:
Now it was 2014.Oct, and after a hard year of depression and discouragement, I finally decided I was ready, it was time to try again.
Now I have a new horse, but now much to my dismay, the problems I have endured over the last decade have not lessened as much as I thought, or hoped.
So here we go again. This page will now be my Hall of Shame for the worst of the local reckless speeders that do not slow down or show any regard for safety, or the life of others.
RCW 46.61.400(1,3) Basic rule and maximum limits, the duty of all persons to use due care, and drive at a reduced speed when special hazard exists.
RCW 46.61.500(1) Reckless driving defined as disregard for safety.
RCW 46.61.465 Exceeding speed limit is evidence of reckless driving.
RCW 46.61.5249(2a) "Negligent" means the failure to exercise ordinary care.
RCW 46.61.025 Persons riding animals upon a roadway shall be granted all the rights and shall be subject to all the duties applicable to the driver of a vehicle.
And who also are alleged and accused of DUI, including drugs. Many neighbors have expressed anger about the situation, and say they wish they had never moved here. The same thing I said on my last page. Seems we all agree on something...Think about that for a moment.
Many nice people have sold and moved away. Perhaps they are the smarter ones.

Up to today, Red has always been very good about keeping me in the saddle, acting like a gentleman. He is healthy, forward, obedient, and eager to explore. We have already logged 52 hours (in the saddle) together.

Now the events of March 07 have ended that. I have never hit the ground this hard in all my 30 years of riding. Not to mention Twice in one hour.

2015.Mar.07 11:05
ASF4294 speeding westbound between 55-61 mph, skids sideways around corner, left of center, out of control, fishtailing with RECKLESS ABANDON and total DISREGARD FOR SAFETY.
When zooming past me and my horse, (a Pontiac G5 2008 has a wheelbase of 103.5") in 4.0 frames = only slowed down to 44 MPH
Distance from corner to point of passing by me = 523 ft. in 6.13 sec. = 58 MPH average.
Distance from corner to corner = 869 ft. in 11.16 sec. = 53 MPH overall.

The teal/green pickup driving up and down Lambert Creek this year, seen 16 times by me and clocked up to 64 MPH, I finally got video of, and the plate returns to the same driver (above) in the blue Pontiac sedan.

Chapter 6 of my e-book contains the narrative for this hour, and subsequent accidents. This page is presenting the evidence.

B84802V speeding eastbound over 40 mph, middle of the roadway cutting the corner, After earlier three scares today, Red panics again and I am de-horsed.

I would agree the separation was sufficient, but since this is a repeat offender, and going past a horse at this speed is not showing due care, this is a valid complaint.

End result:

The prosecuting attorney for Ferry County has decided these laws of the state of Washington are not worthy of being enforced.

Case# 15-1-0045
Declined to prosecute. Dog behavior is a civil issue.
Translation: Dog can do anything except bite you.
RCW 16.08.070(2) has no teeth.
What's the point in writing laws you can't enforce?

Case# 15-1-0065
Declined to prosecute.
Speeding must be observed by an officer.
Translation: Skidding sideways and fishtailing is not reckless. Horses are not worthy of any special treatment. You may drive any speed at any distance from any person or animal, as long as you don't hit them.
Violating RCW 46.61.465 is condoned, because video is not considered evidence.

So there you have it. Recording video as evidence does not produce justice, and does not protect the innocent. My efforts over the last 9 years to protect my horse and I, now that something finally did happen, have been proven misguided and fruitless.
So what's the point of gathering evidence if law enforcement is not going to use it?

To add more hypocritical nonsense to this mess, is that in 2007 Ferry County wrote Ordanance 2007-22 for OHV (Off Highway Vehicles = quads = 4 wheelers) which states in Section 1, Paragraph C, subsection 1, (on page 3), the maximum speed when approaching horses, livestock, etc. is 5 MPH.

If my tone has turned sarcastic and snarky, then maybe that's all that's left to respond with... What other interpretation can be concluded from all this?

"Only those who can afford lawyers are able to afford rights."


It seems that quote is correct.
DUI Speeders rejoice! You win. I won't be watching any more. My courage, and persistance have finally hit a wall I can not pass.
Horse for sale. (link was active for 4 months, now expired.) Not suitable for roads. Not safe for kids. The video promotion is still below to the right.



Food for Thought
For the week of 2016-Feb-17, I wrote a letter to the editor to the Ferry County View, with an opening illustration. Here's the extended and intended interpetation, and follow-up conclusion:
Hazards on the trail

Imagine going for a walk with your child. When you get near the road—because all paths lead past some roads—your daughter acts scared when a truck goes by fast. Do you berate her for her fear, or teach her the car did not hit her so everything is okay?
The second of course.
But how close does the traffic have to get before her fear is justified?

If you are driving down the road, and some kid along the side throws rocks at you, do you call police? Did the rock hit you? No? Then no crime was committed, have a good day. Click.

Recently a skier on a non-motorized trail had a close call with a speeding snowmobile. How common is this?
If you live in certain parts of our county, it won't surprise you to learn this can be a daily occurrence. In the summer, the type of vehicle is simply different, and the skier can be a bicyclist or a horse.

A comment was made that getting a camera would help. I have my doubts.
As a horseback rider on Lambert Creek Road, for the past nine years I have put up with vehicles exceeding the speed limit by at least 15 MPH. My horses are like my children, so I finally started investing in cameras in 2009. Now I have a large collection—literally hundredsgraph analyzing traffic patterns‐of recordings of cars rushing as fast as 66 MPH down a dirt road with a posted 30 MPH limit.
Have the cameras helped? The cars did not strike my horse, so no crime was committed. The prosecutor says an officer has to be present to issue a speeding ticket and that speeding does not rise to the level of reckless driving (despite RCW 46.61.465 to the contrary). Skidding sideways and fishtailing on video did get one citation issued (I was told). Editor's investigating of that citation this week, has thrown some doubt on that statement.

Mixing fast motorized with non-motorized travel only leads to heartache—I have the sprained shoulder, bruised back, tendonitis and other injuries from being unhorsed to prove it. This is why so many passionate attempts to prohibit ATVs on the rail trail have been made.
In 2007 this county passed an ordinance limiting the speed of OHVs to 5 MPH when approaching horses and livestock, and most areas of the national forest are off limits to motorized bikes. Does that stop off-road riders from speeding and operating where they are prohibited?
Today I live with a spinal injury and an empty barn due to my neighbors' recklessness. As long as the authorities are unable to enforce the laws they have written, I am certain that further designation of our trails as mixed use will only end in additional tragedy.
Note the road up in my example, is not a FREEWAY. It is a residential neighborhood.
It is wrong to throw rocks. Throwing rocks should not be acceptable, nor is it compatible with the desire to live in a peaceful place. (a.k.a. the right to life, liberty, and happiness, as some phrase it. Same idea.)

When my "daughter" screams at the top of her lungs, and yells "I'm scared daddy. I want to go home!" Is it My fault the truck was speeding?
It is inevitable I will be (and have been) told, I should walk somewhere else!

Well, put up a real estate sign, it was a mistake to move here! The easements for riding trails have no teeth, and were as misleading as snake oil. Sue the real estate salesman for not telling me the neighborhood was controlled by gangs of hoodlums and druggies.
Not likely, so let's turn back off the sarcasm and desperation that crept in, and get serious about this.


So who would tell me I should walk somewhere else? as if this was the wrong neighborhood to move to? Ah, friends of the druggies, and lawbreakers themselves perhaps?
Or equestrian haters? In a development designated for horseback riding? Didn't read the covenants or easements before signing the title... I see...

If some kids are dropping bricks from an overpass, should we say no crime is committed when they drop without hitting any cars?
Let's say they are being dropped 100 ft. in front of each vehicle.
No! Dropping bricks is wrong! Calling police is correct.

What has happened in my case, is that although the falling brick did not hit any cars, one driver did hit the brakes in fear of another brick falling 2 seconds later. Thus a chain reaction pileup was started, that 3 cars back caused a fatality.
Now will the prosecutor say no crime was committed because the brick did not hit any cars?
My illustration hits a snag, for sadly the prosecutor might say that, for the alternate problem was in the vehicles following too close.

That would be not-too-different from a tailgater hitting a vehicle in front that hits the brakes. BUT, if we take that route and say it is always the rider's fault for riding here, then we can also extrapolate that it is the skier's fault for chosing to ski or go anywhere that snowmobiles can and do go. Suddenly NOWHERE is safe to ride or enjoy nature, because somebody with a more powerful, fast, or scary weapon can and will run you off, because no trail is safe once the law is left without enforcement.
I am certain that is not the intent of having the law.
The only solution of course, is for everybody to obey the rules that exist to protect others, as well as themselves. And for all people to look out not for their own interest, but for others' as well. -- Php 2:4
In the meantime, we are left with a real mess, ... here, and now.
