More proof that he was the fellow.

Maybe he got let go or the management realizes that this is not the kind of attention that the Audi brand wants.

Frankly speaking, if that was company car that he crashed in the fatal accident, his arse should have been fired that day. I imagine the dealer can be named in a civil suit.

You would be surprised at the power of social media. More importantly, this guy has no regard for public safety and is a menace. Your tune might change if this guy hit someone you know.

Petition is picking up quite a lot of traction. 17K+ signed and growing.

What I think is more effective for 30 secs of your time is to send an email inquiry (or a quick telephone call) to the GM of Audi Vancouver and politely ask him if the Ken Chung on staff is the one who was recently acquitted of the dangerous driving charge and if the high speed Audi involved was owned by your dealer. If it isn't, then I'm sure the dealer would say no because they don't want to be connected or associated with this case in any way. If it is, they probably won't reply, then you know it is. Tell the GM that you would not do business with a dealer that keeps a repeat dangerous driver like that as a salesperson.

Apparently, his picture and contact was already removed from the staff directory this morning. So something must be happening behind the scenes.

Social media justice.

Is losing his job all the retribution this sucker would get?

I'd hardly say that justice is served if someone has killed another person due to gross negligence and a general lack of regard for public safety.

Doesn’t do anything, guy who killed Constance Ng racing his Civic years ago found regular employment at the same company my buddy used to work at, high profile sales job... sure people talked about him behind his back but it never affected his ability to make money.

NTS: If I ever need to kill someone, use my car, do it at high speeds, and bring blow.

Justice sometimes is very strange.

If I remember correctly, Ken Chung had a personal B7 RS4, the one in the accident looks like a B7 S4 or RS4. He also worked at different dealerships as well. So at the time of the accident I am certain it's not related to Audi Downtown.

if you were Ken Chung, and known to have driven recklessly even after killing someone
would you just come out now and apologize on social media and do damage control?

the petition is now at 30K after just a few days...for a small-ish city that's a lot of pitchforks out for this guy's blood

Why? An apology would do absolutely nothing, same as attacking the guys workplace; making his managers deal with people like whitev70r is not part of their job, and is stress they shouldn’t have to deal with

Correct, it was an RS4. Social Media and Internet ftw again. It's actually pretty crazy at that speed at those hours in the morning on that street, I really would like to know the rational behind the judges reasoning...

Although this guy is a massive idiot driving 140km/h in the city, are we just gonna leave this doctor with no blame?

If you are turning left at an intersection and if you are scanning the oncoming traffic, you gotta be able to judge the speed of the oncoming car right?

I know it's not right to disrespect someone who died, but people pretty much always placed the blame on the person who killed the other party, but if the doctor was driving defensively or paying attention, I don't think the accident would had happened.

If it was a head on collision, then it's a completely different story, but this was avoidable.

It would be the doctors fault if it was at a reasonable speed. But more than double the speed limit is unreasonable. How often do you expect a vehicle to enter an intersection at highway speeds, in morning rush hour?

Would you be able to stop a puck or hit a baseball at 60 kmh? What about 140 kmh? Speed matters.

In addition, this guy was weaving in and out of traffic, leaving blind spots for a lot of people. The collision would have been unavoidable in my opinion.

Yah if he was just coming down the road... okay I expect the left turner to realize whoa that car is going fast I better hold up... but the report said he was weaving between cars and came out into the slow lane so he may well have been completely obscured...... not the left turner's fault IMO................... but as we already know, ICBC has zero discretion when it comes to fault of left turners... so here we are.
