Yes we can all blame the police for usuing the van in a place that may be dangerous, but, had he not been speeding, he wouldn't have braked and therefore would still be alive.
And before you all slate me for my opinion, which I'm more than allowed have, yes I do speed, at the right time and place, and I seriously, no I DO KNOW, that training people to ride/drive PROPERLY would save a darn sight more lives than a yellow box on a pole or a police person sat in a van getting paid overtime.
The standard at which a pass is given on a driving/riding test is ludicrously below an acceptable standard, endorsed by a female friend of mine who passed her test and yet cannot reverse, cannot drive in the rain or the dark, refuses to use a dual carraigeway or motorway, stops at roundabouts even if it's clear to go, the list goes on.
No way does she have enough competence to drive a car on her own. Speed doesn't kill, bad and inconsiderate driving does!!
Still, I hope the fines made a death worthwhile on that day!! And it's been proven that cameras don't cut road deaths, hey ho, they make money, they carry on regardless!!
