Motorist would not have landed cyclist's 'wanton and furious driving' charge
Charlie Alliston should have had a front brake but 18mph is a cautious speed and double standards are at work here
A heavy-handed prosecution against a cyclist for manslaughter has failed but a charge of “wanton and furious driving” has succeeded.
In 2016 more than 400 pedestrians were killed on UK roads. Each a terrible tragedy to those involved and almost all avoidable. One of these casualties, Kim Briggs, died after a collision between herself and a teenage cyclist, Charlie Alliston.
