Driver who blocked overtaking biker jailed

A father-of-two who moved his car to prevent a motorcyclist overtaking has been jailed for eight months for dangerous driving. Andrew Sherratt, 32, caused “life-changing injuries” to 49-year-old Andrew Morris by forcing him into the path of oncoming traffic. Paulinus Barnes, prosecuting, said: “Mr Morris went to overtake the defendant. “There was some traffic coming in the other direction but the...

Good Judgement!!!

Good on the judge seeing it as it was, an attempt at causing serious injury or worse to another road user. As has been said, some motorists resent motorcyclists and their ability to pass or filter through traffic when they can't!! Thank god the rider wasn't killed and was able to present his case instead of being an accident statistic! Let's hope cases like this get as much publicity as possible and maybe , just maybe it may stop some other like minded individual trying the same stunt!! Reckon also, as was said earlier, that the driver should be subject to another test and psychological assessment before being allowed behind the wheel again. Also 8 months is a very short sentence considering that what he did was tantamount to attempted murder. Maybe others will get the message!!!!!!!!!!!!

selfishness!

As a cyclist aswell as a biker I am often cut up on the near side when riding along. If there happens to be a traffic light on red car drivers will sometime deliberately swing back in towards the kerbside to block my progress. They hate to see that I can get in front of them when they have to wait in a queue of traffic. At least justice was served on that prat of a driver. I do hope that the biker will soon recover well enough to get back on his machine and doesn't loose his nerve to ride again.

Fantastic News

Good to hear that retarded car drivers are being punished.  Just one turn of the wheel in the stupidly wrong direction has resulted in that car driver being subjected to 8 months solid bum rape in the prison showers.

All Too Common on both sides...

Sadly when I was overtaking a tipper truck in an outside lane and his lane became a bus lane he simply swerved onto me my choice was go under the wheels or into central reservation & pedestrian island... as i managed to avoid his wheels however he lied and walked away scott free as no direct witnesses if he hadnt been flagged down would not have even stopped...

"was trying to decrease the danger" So you swerve in-front of a motorcycle? Gosh your full of crap! Admit it you were road raged at someone overtaking your stupid f***ing cage. Rot in jail! I don't care how many kids you have, perhaps they will learn something from your stupidity.

Guy did that to me

in Gloucester, only it was when I was on a bicycle.  The car was pushing me and I was basically leaning on it as he tried to shove me onto oncoming traffic.


Caught him later in a partial jam, opened his door and demanded he fight about it.  He agreed to pull over, but the cowardly fuck drove off as the jam cleared.  Damn, I would have ripped his head off if I'd got hold of him.
