Fine and ban for Australian driver videoed hitting cyclist
Quick retribution for driver charged with failed to exercise "due care"
The driver who was caught on video tail-gating and then hitting a cyclist in Brisbane Australia last week was yesterday fined and disqualified.
The 25-year-old woman was driving through a junction on Klump Road, south of Brisbane, when she hit the 56-year-old male cyclist.
The incident was caught on video by driver Andrew Ison who provided the victim with a copy of the footage.
The driver was subsequently charged with driving without due care and fined $600 (about £330) and banned from driving for three months.
The rider was treated for minor injuries at Brisbane’s Queen Elizabeth II Hospital.
