The driver gets a citation; is the company that they work for also fined? Is the dollar amount involved painful enough to actually educate?

I think the embarrassment is plenty enough to educate. I doubt many people Storrow twice in their lifetime.

Even when nobody gets hurt, a small excavator like the one on the picture starts in the high five-figure. A decapitated truck would also be in the $tens of thousands in damage and a huge insurance penalty. I don't think that anyone who gets closely involved with a storrowed vehicle ever forgets about it.

It's a new driver every time.

Big fines for the last guy won't stop the next guy.
