Good on The Cyclists' Defence Fund for crowdfunding for prosecution on this case. This is an example of the internet being an advantage for justice, when legal aid and other cuts are everywhere. The verdict on this case being made so quickly makes me think there are, perhaps, some details not covered, but I'm failing to see how, if the bike and car were both travelling in the same direction, the driver could not have been at fault. Cyclists have a hard time on the roads as it is, and this verdict, as the article states, is giving a bad message about careful driving in cities.
Britain’s first crowdfunded prosecution has ended with the defendant being acquitted in just 17 minutes as the jury said she was not guilty of killing a cyclist by dangerous driving.
