    A journey we'll never get to the end of, all the time:-

    - A 2 week old's death doesn't register.
    - People not in cars don't feel safe.
    - Public transport remains overpriced and woefully underfunded.
    - LTN's are sneered at on national news.
    - Us motorists are given annual tax breaks at the pumps.
    - Electric cars are prioritised over electric anything else.

    and we have an entire culture of:-

    'I must get there first, I must save 10 secs'.

    (feel free to add)
    Let us not forget the pedestrians put at peril everyday by numerous arse hole cyclists who insist on breaking the law by riding on the pavement.

    As a spokesman for the cycling lobby, perhaps you might want to consider putting your own house in order before putting the boot into car drivers. (And I don't drive!)

      Out of 400 pedestrians' deaths by collision, just 2.5 are from a cyclist. 397.5 from a vehicle.
      Some of which, are the pedestrians at fault for stepping out without looking.

      It seems in this case the sentencing wasn't the problem. Why did the judge only give him three and half years when he could have given him four times as much?

      Just looking at the court record.

      Death by careless driving

      Death whilst driving uninsured and without a licence

      Failure to stop after an accident/collision

      Causing death by careless driving.

      Seems the judged sentenced him on the basis that he wasn't under the influence despite visual evidence to the contrary! Guessing it was also a lighter sentence due to a guilty pleas. Doesn't seem right or just.
