A Critical Review of the Legal Penalties for Drivers Who Kill Cyclists or Pedestrians

Not a lot of research is in the public domain on this. Jake Voelcker has submitted his paper to Bristol University on topic.

I commend this to all who have wondered about the leniency of sentences for deaths of vulnerable road users.

I also draw it to the attention of law enforcement and law makers across the globe. You can do better. This goes a long way to show you are not doing enough.

Are pedestrians and bicyclists deaths acceptable collateral damage for reckless use of lethal tonnes of steel in a public place?

Seems the Courts think so!
