As some of you know, I was struck by a taxi 3 years ago while cycling and the driver was charged with serious injury by dangerous driving. This has now been to court and he was found guilty by a jury.
I’ve shared the article below as I believe it’s important that as vulnerable road users the PF and courts take suitable action against such drivers and it should be recognised that they are.
It’s also worth noting that on the same day as my trial a driver was remanded and faces a life sentence for hitting a cyclist doing 80mph in a 30mph zone.
