Interested to know other opinions on the case in the news of the woman who has been jailed for 3 years for manslaughter following the death of a cyclist. She has cerebral palsy and was walking along the pavement when a cyclist came towards her. She gestured with her arm and said to " get off the f.... ing pavement " The cyclist swerved and fell into oncoming traffic and sadly died. The pedestrian who also has cognitive issues has been jailed for manslaughter.
On the video it does not appear to be a wide path with a designated cycle section.
I get very frustrated by cyclists on pavements as I have balance problems and reduced hearing. I become nervous and worry that I will be knocked over.
What does everyone think of this tragic case ?
