Default Killer driver gets almost five years

No plastic hats mentioned.

QUOTE:

"The man who hit and killed cycle campaigner John Radford in a road rage incident has been jailed for four years and eight months after admitting causing death by dangerous driving, reports The Huddersfield Examiner.

Michael Gledhill was convicted of causing serious injury by dangerous driving in 2013, but when Radford later died of his injuries, fresh charges were brought.

Radford was chairman of Huddersfield CTC and a Yorkshire regional representative on the CTC's national council. He is credited with spearheading the CTC's Road Justice campaign in West Yorkshire by meeting with his PCC, Mark Burns-Williamson, to deliver the Road Justice report.

On July 31, 2013, he became involved in an altercation with Gledhill while cycling on the A616 Huddersfield Road in New Mill. Gledhill was accused of succumbing to "road rage" and following a collision, Radford fell into the road, sustaining brain damage.

A jury at Leeds Crown Court subsequently found Gledhill guilty of causing serious injury through dangerous driving, but a month later, Radford died of his injuries. A decision was then made to pursue the more serious charge of causing death by dangerous driving."

Riding a bicycle in the primary position is an excellent way to make sure that drivers can see you, but is no defence against a driver intent on using their vehicle as a lethal weapon.

and on some roads it will hold up traffic and cause road rage.

And on those roads, there is the perfect antidode to 'road rage'.

No it won't - cyclists ARE traffic.

And road rage is caused by inconsiderate car drivers, not traffic.

Anyway, it looks as though Mr. Gledhill won't be receiving mail at 94
Bramble Bank, Holmfirth, W. Yorks, HD9 7LJ for quite a while.

You obviously hope that his family, despite the difficulties already
caused to them, are also going to be on the receiving end of bricks
through the windows and other terrorism perpetrated by militant, though
brain-dead, cyclists.

Would you describe yourself as quite right in the head?

Hey, Tom, it's nice to meet someone else with the same name.

Will the killer driver assume the primary position in the jailhouse shower block?

Do you have these thoughts often? Have you discussed them with your
Doctor or family? Fantasies like these may show some deep yearning that
you have, yet do not admit publicly.
