Seems rather harsh when, for the same offence, a motorist would get a
60 fine at most.
And that would be if the 'it was just a momentary lapse of
concentration' or the 'I pay rudetax' defences failed.


It only seems harsh to you as you are a scum cyclist who expects to be above
the law.
Things are changing for the better. Scum like you can now expect to be
locked up.

So we should get rid of the 10%+2mph leeway on speed limits?

Things are changing for the better.


Indeed they are, more people are cycling.

Dunno and don't care. I keep to the speed limit. It is very easy to do this.

Things are changing for the better.


Indeed they are, more people are cycling.


And being prosecuted for breaking the law.

More MAMILsS are about but the numbers of utility cyclists and
children cycling continues to decline.

I would not offer my shoulder to support the coffin containing a cyclist.

That's OK, I am an agnostic atheist.

For driving through a pedestrian only shopping area and running
someone down in the process? Seems unlikely.


Especially if he (or she) had been warned after committing the same
offence (minus the GBH) a day earlier.

But the rules don't apply to cyclists.

It was a 'he'. The link provided says: "The cyclist, a 21-year-old man
from Stoke-on-Trent, pleaded guilty last month to causing bodily harm
by wilful misconduct when driving and was sentenced to 27 weeks in
prison."

For 'driving' read 'cycling', presumably.

Yes, that was made clear in the reporting of the Alliston case. It
wasn't really in doubt before that, though.
