This is a disgrace:

An unsupervised learner driver, Mikael Rodriguez, has walked free from court despite admitting killing a cyclist while turning his car around at a busy junction.

Newspaper article is a bit unclear- he was unsupervised but was driving with his mother?

Did have a learner licence?
L plates?
Was his mother licenced too?

Accidents do happen but if the above is no to all questions then to make people think hard -we need introduce a life ban minimum for driving.

Also why was the cyclist on the wrong side of the road? was he turning?

Badly reported article but a sad loss for another cyclist.

I like my bike but it needs a hidden 25cc motor Smile
