Hope that the op goes well and the femur heals. Also that your four is back on the road soon!
What happened to you is pretty horrifying. I do think that the process of law enforcement trivialises the consequences of mistakes (and I'm being polite here). When I learned to drive in 1974 my instructor told me that driving a car was like having a loaded gun - a lethal weapon. I think the problem is that people just trivialise the consequences of a collision and the fact that the other vehicle might be smaller doesn't necessarily mean that the perpetrator is going to come off lightly.
Getting on my soap box, I think that causing an accident should have real consequences for the protagonist. Not a slap on the wrist, a few points on the licence and a six shilling fine. If people got really hammered and made an example of, then maybe others would think twice about negotiating a roundabout with one hand on the wheel and the other clamping a phone to the head (yes, I see it all the time)!!
Anyway, at least you have not been discouraged and I look forward to perhaps seeing you around one day!
