because it seems rather than criticise/charge the driver with driving faster than they could see (by headlamps/streetlamps) they have instead attempted to charge the/a pedestrian.
What about injured persons lying in the road, will they be charged next?
EDIT Note the reason this alarmed me is because I remember this post https://thecyclingsilk.blogspot.com/2015/02/criminal-prosecutions-arising-from-road.html which contained the following
More (21) involved pedestrians but the Inspectors were critical of overcharging (yes, overcharging) in 4 of those cases that involved running down a pedestrian at night because prosecutors and police 'imposed an unrealistic standard of driving on the suspects in these cases'.
Most people seem to driver faster than dipped beams allow.
EDIT if the pedestrian jumped out at the last minute such that even in daylight braking could not avoid a collision, surely that would be mentioned).
If the (unidentified) pedestrian did jump out when the car was too close to stop (even if driving within headlamp range) as above sentence then I retract the post but still feel it would be balanced to point out the necessity of drivers to drive within range of dipped beam.
