To be fair it's going to be a few days till we get a handle on what Frosh is thinking. Too many of those comments mirror what Frosh was saying before he read the bill.

Major kudos goes out to Jim Titus (of PG County) who did a very through case law analysis to answer Frosh's question of what kind of negligence falls under this bill, which is more then simple negligence (that's roughly the current $500 max fine) and less then gross negligence which by Maryland standards requires DUI plus one or two more violations.

From Adiva Sotzsky, member of the Bike Maryland Task Force

Following yesterday's hearing, Senator Frosh said that he would support the bill if the wording regarding 'substantial deviation' was changed to the model penal code's terminology of gross deviation (which is not the same as gross negligence).

Delegate Simmons made those adjustments to the bill -- had it reviewed by the Attorney General's office -- and brought it to Frosh who said he would NOT support it.
Thus Frosh is reneging on what he said he would do.

Please contact your senators and members of the Judicial Proceedings Committee, etc. to contact Frosh to stand by/fulfill his promises
he asked for a change in wording so that he could/would support the bill
the change was made. He was brought the changes and now he is not supporting the bill with the changes..

Frosh is a defense attorney:  no surprises here.
