Default Speeding driver who killed dedicated cyclist days before Christmasgets jail sentence

Utter scum driver.
QUOTE:
A speeding Porsche driver who killed a cyclist when he lost control of his £50,000 sports car and knocked him off his bike has been spared jail.

David McSkimming was driving at 59mph in a 40mph zone when he collided with keen cyclist Anthony Satterthwaite, 51.

The 53-year-old was travelling almost 20mph over the speed limit on Eastcote Lane, Solihull, West Mids., when he lost control on a bend.

He hit a tree, span across the road and smashed into Mr Satterthwaite who was cycling in the opposite direction.

Mr Satterthwaite suffered multiple injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash which happened at 11.50am on December 22, 2018.

McSkimming, who lives in Knowle, West Mids., admitted causing death by careless driving at Birmingham Crown Court.

In a victim impact statement read to the court, Mr Satterthwaite’s wife said: "Most people will remember Anthony for his huge smile, his laugh and his friendly demeanour.

"Anthony was an incredibly strong cyclist who was passionate about the sport and would cycle hundreds of miles a week to keep fit and also enjoy the great outdoors as well as the social aspect of cycling."

Today McSkimming was sentenced to six months in prison, suspended for two years, ordered to carry out 250 hours of community service and banned from driving for two years.

Detective Sergeant Paul Hughes, of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: "This was a tragic collision which resulted in the death of a much-loved husband and father.

"Our thoughts remain with Anthony’s devastated family at this difficult time."

Merely a two year ban?

We need to bear in mind the Police investigators have to report a speed based on their measurements and errors then give the defendant the benefit of the doubt and report the MINIMUM possible speed. If the report showed a MINIMUM speed of 59mph it was more likely an indicated speed of 90mph.

So you think the calculations had no errors? Even though car speedometers MUST over read by law?

Are you one of the people who believed that when the UK mains voltage changed from 240v to 230v in line with the rest of the EU cookers used less energy?

It's called error.
