Now here is a case from earlier this year.

A speeding driver who was sending a text message when she hit and killed a teenage cyclist was today jailed for four years.

Hotel manager Kiera Coultas, 25, was replying to a message on her mobile phone when she hit scaffolder Jordan Wickington, 19.

The teenager, who was not wearing a cycle helmet, stopped at the traffic lights momentarily and went through them on red.

Apart from showing our cyclist chums (I hope) the perils of going through red lights (as if they need to be told), it also shows that car drivers are subject (rightly imo) to punitive law.

Let's hope that - if guilty - this particular cyclist scum gets jail, not a fine. Anything else would not be justice.
