You own University Heights Pizza, a pizza company that provides mostly home delivery. One of your drivers, Donald, routinely drives in excess of speed limits when delivering Pizza, and you are aware of these problems. One night while delivering pizzas, Donald decides to visit a girlfriend. You are aware that he sometimes does this, and you have not objected as long as the Pizza gets delivered on time. On the way to his girlfriend’s house, but on the way to deliver a customer’s pizza, Donald runs a red light at high speeds and seriously injures Alice, a driver in another car who had the right of way.
