And this is clearly what's wrong with people nowadays...no one wants to man up to their mistakes.
People would rather clog the system and waste everyone's time and money to get off on a technicality.

Maybe it accomplishes a job as a reminder to the OP that he actually did do wrong? He did do wrong ( according to the facts he gave us) , the fact that he refuses to accept that is even more reason to issue a VT. It may help motivate him to change his driving and his attitude. Anyone who crashes when they clearly did something wrong, and refuse to accept that they did wrong, needs more than a visit from the tooth fairy to help them change their opinions and their actions. I'm also hoping ICBC makes him pay for the costs too....another reminder that he was wrong. I don't want to pick up his tab.
I find people tend to care more if it hits them in the pocket book.
Off topic, but if you were one of those idiots rioting in Vancouver last year, would you rather pay the thousands, or tens of thousands of dollars in damages you caused, or spend 3 weeks in jail?
Unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, I would say the majority would choose the later if given the choice.
