Sorry mate but you're way off base here . Playing the pragmatist is all well and good but i daresay had it been your offspring then you'd be in the shed sharpening the pitch fork like any parent would .he’s not the first biker to loose an argument with a car, the way people are carrying on, you’d think this was unique and the greatest tragedy on the roads in recorded history, not just one of 319 biker fatalities in 2019.
My Grandad was convinced one day after he turned the gas hob on and couldn't remember how to turn it off. So he drove to the fire station for assistance, parking the car on a convenient round about on the way... right out of the blue he went from normal to 'wtf!'.Your unit of measure is what - years of age or MPH?
I ask because my PIL is an octogenarian and we've only recently got him to understand that he needs to give up on the driving thing.
Defined by 'end of civil twilight'. The times are published in Almanacs.General rule of thumb is, its not officially dark until the street lights come on....or so i was told...........
I'm happy to be guided by others - but from what was discussed at the time, jail was a most unlikely outcome unless aggravating factors emerged during the investigation.Just imagine if Ann Sacoolas went to court and had the opportunity to defend herself in the circumstances of the accident ?
Things like being experienced in right hand side driving, summer evening, unfortunate chance of Harry Dunn approaching before she corrected to the correct side of the road, etc
Nope. Sunset in London on 27 August 2019 was at 20:29. RAF Croughton is 1° 11' west of London so sunset at the scene would have been 20:33.nope, sun set at 8.00pm
I asked my daughter (solicitor) about this some time ago. Death by dangerous driving usually results in a custodial sentence. A UK citizen could reasonably expect a minimum of 2 years.I'm happy to be guided by others - but from what was discussed at the time, jail was a most unlikely outcome unless aggravating factors emerged during the investigation.
One way the US could have 'managed' this was to waive her immunity from prosecution but not her inviobility - ie she could not be arrested or detained. Upsetting as it would be for her family, the public interest would not have been served by Ms Sakoolas being imprisoned.I asked my daughter (solicitor) about this some time ago.

It's not a minor charge.
That's why it wrankles that she's getting off scot free.
Actually, yes it was just a few seconds, and as is very well known, the most dangerous manoeuvre and the cause of most driving on the wrong side accidents right across Europe is.... Turing right onto an empty road, even easier in the dark, oh, what’s that, it was 8.30pm, not high noon as many seem to imagine.
and the ‘death by dangerous driving’ charge was politically motivated BS by Northamptonshire plod under pressure from tbe Dunne clan.
the sentencing guidelines clearly state, no agravating circumstances = death by careless driving, a a minor charge - fine and points.
Secret text, imprinted upon the interior of his tinfoil headwear, I strongly suspect.I’m intrigued by what it is you’ve had sight of that indicates the standard of the evidence across the whole of this case.

Mrs Sakoolas had diplomatic privilege when she was accompanying her husband in the UK. Those privileges did not continue after she left the Receiving State (UK).Now... she has been declared as having diplomatic immunity. we can now use that against her......... basically she is fcked by her own governments previous Supreme court decisions as examples
Worse thing that could happen to her.
Could get on a plane.... declare yourself..... bailed the next day........ get back on a plane.... (Flight risk)?
By previous precedents of the USA Law courts................... bang her onto the next flight to the UK.Mrs Sakoolas had diplomatic privilege when she was accompanying her husband in the UK. Those privileges did not continue after she left the Receiving State (UK).
