Correct me if I'm wrong. The driver was on the phone, his car would have failed an MOT test due to defective tyres, he was speeding, and there were other issues as well. Why wasn't he banned for life and locked up for a very long time?
From my reading of it the offender had been fined on previous occasions for phone use whilst driving and defective tyres.
When he hit the cyclist his car had defective tyres,lights and an empty screen wash reservoir.
