Let's hope that they keep her in prison and that drivers start to get the message that using their vehicle as a weapon is unacceptable.


Really it's a wonder that the road toll for cyclists isn't much higher. She should have had to pay for his medical costs and been banned from driving for life as well as the prison sentence. I bet if the roles were reversed and the cyclist was a pregnant woman the sentencing would have been much different.

she did that 'literally' around the corner from the stoke-newington police station!

3 years is a joke, surely. 30 years makes more sense. No one will miss her.
