How can you miss a stop sign? Everyone I tried to run over I hit it dead on--snaps right off. Am I missing something? or should I read the article?

Thao= Hmong

Wang= Chinese

The commercial's from the Dept. of the U.S. Transportation says that those under 4'-9" should use a booster seat.

WELL? Politically incorrect to mandate someone to be able to see over the dashboard?

I see cars all the time that look like there is no one driving until I pass them and see only the top of their heads which always have non-afro black hair.

Why should we have to put up with these midgets on the road and get killed because they can't comprehend the culture or rules?

God help you when the Asian midgets get behind the Toyota Tundra (their favorite).

I'm just pointing out the obvious, so don't get mad at me.

JOn, accidents dont only happen with asian midgets as you so kindly mentioned. IF the excuse is for short asian people is because theyre midgets and they shouldnt be driving because of their height and may i say race since you did say ''asian''...then what happens to the other 90% of the accidents that happen out there? Can they be allowed to drive too? I mean NOT all asian midgets cause the majority of the accidents out there? Why would you make such a ignorant and idiotic comment like that. Had it been you in that accident I am sure the story would be different...I am sure you would have cried ''victim'' lmao!

People please stopping making ignorant, racist, discriminating idiotic comments regarding the people in this accident. it was an accident dude..it's not like they ran the stop sign on purpose..who would purposely drive into 65-70 mph road on purpose. Short, tall, asian, non-asian whatever you are, I am sure if you were on that road..I am sure what you thought you did, looking both ways may have been a bad judgement or either way something may have distracted you. I am sure all the people involved in the accident did not wish any of this to happen to them. peace!

She was driving a Toyota. Any bets she will use the "I was pushing the brake pedal but it didn't stop" defense?

Seriously, have a heart you racist idiots. This woman has been in the country 30 years and knows the culture just fine. EVERYONE makes mistakes. Don't pretend like you're all too good to ever miss a stop sign. It seems to me that you all the ignorant ones here.

Your post just gave me a mental image of my stepfather when he was still trying to drive. He used to use a three inch seat cushion. Later in life, even the cushion wasn't any help. The last several times he tried driving - he had accidents. The very last time he drove, he drove around the block and came back scared and never tried to drive again. That's because he was so short he couldn't see over the steering wheel. When he was a passenger, you couldn't see him at all. I will never forget the day he almost drove us onto the freeway. He made his left hand turn, but aimed the car at the corner of the freeway overpass as though it wasn't there. My mother yelled at him. Otherwise we would have fallen off the overpass into freeway traffic. Thank God he quit driving.

This lady in the article is my mother in law. She was one of the safest drivers. She was able to control any size vehicles on slippery roads. I do not believe that she ran a stop sign. I do believe that all the eye witnesses just said that to put the blame on her. So all u haters caan bouncee off. U all run yo' mouths bur watch when it's your turn. Racist ignorant fools.

Plus they will always, always, always let a door slam in your face when they go through it at a store. The are inconsiderate, selfish little pigs. They only buy from each other, they have their own banking system and cronies. You can go to their churches, BUT THE WANT EVERYTHING FIIDKING free!

HOW stupid are you people...

EVERY HMONG business starts with Hmong, like Hmong towing, Hmong Alliance Church, Hmong credit union, and on and on. That's the thing. They want NOTHING to do with our culture or being nice or get along with other cultures.
