Just read back to the link Graham posted about this latest collision. Interesting figures only 29 pedestrian deaths due to collisions with cyclists from 2007 to 2016. The argument is this figure is so low it's not a significant number compared to other causes of death on our roads.
Reminds me of another thread where someone was criticised for being into guns and cars. I looked up the figures for deaths caused by legally held guns and AIUI 2010 Cumbria massacre was the last case and was either 12 or 20 deaths, I'm afraid my memory has failed on exact figure.
Totally off topic but please be aware that if you use figures and statistics to defend your hobby then you really must accept similar data supporting other hobbies. Hypocrisy is an accusation I'm sure can't be levelled against our more evidence based members.
As far as this case goes, I assume a prosecution is going through the motions? So we're speculating on snippets of information gleaned from the lying media. That's a good start for a thread don't you agree! Hobby horse duly ridden for all its worth until people get bored. Then no doubt someone will post the outcome of the prosecution and it'll start up again. Giddy up everyone, there's still mileage to be made from speculation and with the added benefit of a gear discussion on the power of electric motors.
