Change wrong way driving to a felony in California

This petition had 99 supporters

On September 26, 2016 Maggie Schooley (Stahl) and her boyfriend, Christopher Kimble were killed by a wrong way drunk driver.  This happens far too often in California.  68% of wrong way drivers are intoxicated.  Currently wrong way driving is a misdemeanor infraction.  The penalty for this crime, vehicular manslaughter, in the case of Maggie and Chris, is 4 years for the first and 1/3 or 16 months for the second.  If driving the wrong way was a felony the penalty would be much more suited to the crime.  4 years for killing someone while 1) intoxicated and 2) driving the wrong way is insulting and does not serve as a deterrent.
