    As I said in the other fox43 story about this, hit and runs need to have higher consequences. It is more viable to flee for the DUI driver, the driver with warrants and for drivers without a license. For the DUI driver, they have a 50/50 chance and can’t get a DUI after the fact because there is no proof. When hit and run (pedestrian) is treated like more like attempted murder or other felonies, there may be less running.
