Occurred on A-road

Cyclist, David Parris, dies after collision with Ford escort driver in Bicester - driver charged with causing death by careless driving (04/12/12)

Paramedics alerted Thames Valley Police to the incident shortly before 6pm and reported a collision between a silver Ford Escort and a cyclist on the A4421 Neunkirchen Way, near to Langford Village.

CTC's view: 

Judges do not always impose extended retests for causing death by careless driving, so it is encouraging to see one imposed in this case. However, a two year driving ban is far too short for driving that caused a death.

CTC is calling for greater use of extended driving bans and re-education in sentencing for driving offences.

Paul Kemsley killed cycling on the A30 in Cornwall (5/10/12)

A 54-year-old cyclist has been killed in a crash on the eastbound carriageway of the A30 between Hayle and Tolvaddon.

CTC's view: 

The sentence imposed sits in the mid-range for this type of offence. This is probably because there were no aggravating factors involved such as speeding or use of a mobile phone but no action was taken by Mr Entwistle to avoid the collision.

It is up to a judge’s discretion to impose an extended driving test on drivers who have either been found guilty of, or pleaded guilty to, causing death by careless driving, so we are glad to see this judge has exercised that discretion wisely.
