Charlie Alliston was sentenced today to 18 months for ‘wanton and furious’ cycling resulting in the tragic death of a pedestrian Mrs Kim Briggs. Alliston was rightly jailed in my view but this sentence does not remotely compare with the laughably lenient sentences handed out to motorists over the years who kill / seriously injure […]

The overwhelming issue of the moment is how Government cuts to public services are impacting upon criminal justice in cycling cases.
One of the best things about early instruction after an RTA is that local authority or TFL CCTV should be available within a 30 day window, after which it is deleted.
To my amazement, when a client of mine was seriously injured on a very busy main road, Vauxhall Bridge Road, the police did not automatically request from TFL the footage that was clearly present to inform the police investigation.
Because I was instructed within 30 days, I was able to obtain the footage myself and forward it to the police to consider and review their investigation after they had already closed their enquiries.It is only this footage that now gives my client any chance of winning his civil case after sustaining a life-changing leg injury. He should have been able to rely on the police to do this for him.

It occurred to me some time ago that the hire bike scheme (on which I’m campaigning to be fully extended into zone 2, more of that another time) is perfect when you’re only going one way by bicycle. Last night, I was at a presentation at my son’s school in Pimlico and knew me and him […]
