Cyclists suffer from unjust risk and poor representation. I, the author of these pages, am as much to blame as anyone, in underestimating the costs imposed upon cyclists and accepting the institutionalised predjudices to which they are subject. The legal system seems incapapable of justice, either through lack of understanding, guidance, power, unknown factors or a combination of these. The general populus exhibit huge inconsistency in judgement of cyclists, which must be assumed to bias witness reports and jury verdicts.
As you will see from this list, very few cyclists die without a motor vehicle being involved. Cyclists may be apportioned some portion of blame for their own demise, but please, not all of it! Eventually that total blame must reside somewhere, albeit perhaps divided; if not totally with the cyclist or driver, than we, as a society must apportion and accept some blame. This does not happen at the moment, and until such time as we take responsibility, it never will. Cyclists have little choice but to participate in a game of Russian Roulette, and we permit it. When they die we should put our hands up as organisers and observers of this 'game', say sorry, and compensate their dependents fairley. We should endevour to bring about net social welfare, but by killing cyclists we fail in this objective on many levels.

|On Wednesday 18 April 2007 Location: Junction of Broad Street and Parks Road, Oxford|
|Dustcart driven by Trevor Ashworth|
Ashworth turned left, crushing Mr Fok and his bicycle because he could not see him.
Outside court, family friend Htun Aye, 63, who had known Mr Fok since he was a boy, said he thought Ashworth should have been jailed.
He added: "My personal feelings are he should have got a custodial sentence...Tsz's family are not coping very well...They are still devastated and find it very difficult at this time...He did not deliberately set out to kill Tsz, but unfortunately, it is a matter of fact that a young character - a person whose life was just starting - has been taken."
After the four-day trial held at Wantage Magistrates' Court, Judge Loosley said Ashworth had driven without due care and attention because he had been making mobile phone calls shortly before the collision, and failed to notice his faulty mirror.
He said: "The city centre is heavily populated by pedestrians and cyclists and, in my view, no reasonable, competent or prudent driver would drive that lorry in that state in Oxford on that morning, because of the inherent danger posed to other people."
But Mr Fok was not blameless because he should have waited for Ashworth to turn before he set off from the traffic lights, the judge added.
Sgt Peter Jell, of Bicester Roads Police, backed the verdict and sentence.

|Nissan Prime driven by William Manson aged 62|
|Notes Leicester Crown Court was told Manson, who had a clean driving licence, was overtaking Mr Thompson's bicycle in the face of an oncoming BMW. He misjudged the speed of the BMW. On realising his error, he moved his Nissan X-Trail back into his side of the road, causing Mr Thompson to be thrown over his handlebars. Alan Murphy, prosecuting, said the tragedy happened at 5pm as science graduate Mr Thompson cycled home to Kirkby Mallory after a few drinks at the Steam Trumpet pub, in Thornton. Manson, an electrical engineer, of Meadow Way, Melton, was travelling in the same direction after finishing work. It was a country lane he had regularly travelled on for nine years and the conditions were dry and clear. Shortly after passing the junction with Markfield Lane, he ended up behind Mr Thompson and followed him through a series of bends at about 15mph. Mr Thompson was cycling in a "perfectly proper" manner, about a foot into the road from the edge, with front and rear lights. Mr Murphy said: "As the road straightened he commenced overtaking the bicycle." An oncoming BMW driver became concerned because of the short distance between them. It is not known at what speed the BMW was travelling. The BMW driver later told police he thought it was a 50 mph zone, when it was 40 mph. A line of drivers behind the defendant could clearly see the cyclist and oncoming BMW's headlights and thought it was an odd time to overtake.

|On Friday 3 February 2012 at 1:00 PM Location: Broadgate, Whaplode Drove|
|Suzuki Wagon driven by Walter Coupland aged 80 of Winsover Road, Spalding was Not Injured|
|Notes denied causing the death of cyclist Ken Usher by careless driving on February 3 last year.
The jury of six men and six women cleared him after deliberating for more than six hours at the end of a trial at Lincoln Crown Court.
The collision occurred at lunchtime as Coupland turned left off Broadgate onto Parsons Lane at Whaplode Drove.
At the time he was travelling from Spalding to visit a relative in Throckenholt.
Mr Usher (77), a veteran cyclist who lived in Dowsdale, Crowland, died within minutes of the collision.
At the time of the collision he was out on his daily cycle run riding his custom-built three-wheeler.
Coupland told the jury “I was just my side of the centre white line when the collision occurred.
“You have to take that turning very, very steady. That was what I was doing.
“If you don’t do it like that then you don’t know if there is anybody coming up the road.
“I didn’t expect there would be a collision.
“When the collision happened my windscreen was shattered.
“I didn’t know what it was. It happened so quick.
“In over 50 years of driving I’ve never had a speeding ticket or an accident.
“I’m very sorry for what happened. I did take care. I came round the corner and he was right against the white line.”
Robert Underwood , prosecuting, told the jury the fatal collision was caused by Coupland straying over the centre white line into the wrong carriageway.
He told the jury “Ken Usher was blameless. The cause of the collision was the careless driving of the defendant.
“He drove his car across the centre line road markings and as a consequence he struck Ken Usher.
“We say his driving fell below the standard to be expected of a careful and competent driver.”

|Stephen David Salt aged 46 of Bare, Morecambe|
|On Sunday 12 February 2012 Location: in a crash with two cars on the Kendal bypass one being driven by an off-duty police officer.|
|Vehicle driven by Hayley Johnson|
A CYCLIST who died after being hit by two cars on the A591 near Kendal was nearly three times over the drink-drive limit, an inquest heard.
Stephen Salt, 46, of Bare, Morecambe, suffered multiple head, chest and rib injuries after being knocked off his bike by one car into the path of a second.
He died at the scene.
The incident happened in thick fog and darkness close to Prizet Filling Station on February 12 last year.
Earlier, the postman drank at the Eagle and Child pub in Staveley before making his way home southbound along the dual carriageway.
Witnesses told how they saw Mr Salt riding in the middle of the road, close to the white lines, and how he swerved from one side of the carriageway to the other minutes before the collision.
Kerry Hazelgrave, of Bridlington, who was also in the pub, saw Mr Salt drinking before riding off, telling the inquest that, given the weather conditions, she could not believe he was riding a bike wearing just dark clothes.
Matthew Stidston, of Burneside, a back seat passenger in a vehicle, said he saw Mr Salt close to the central reservation and described the bike’s back light as ‘dim’.
Ian Slater, who was driving home to Lindale with his wife having joined the road at Kendal, said his wife spotted Mr Salt in the middle of the road before he went from the outside to the inside lane.
And mobile care worker Brian Carradice described how Mr Salt, who was a keen cyclist and runner, swerved in front of his vehicle as he made his way to an appointment in Natland.
Hayley Johnson, an off-duty Cumbria Police officer, was driving home to Lancaster after a shift in Kendal when her red Seat Ibiza struck Mr Salt at around 8.15pm.
She said: “I was in lane one and then there was a light in the centre of the road. My initial thoughts were it was a car with a light out or a motorbike.
“By the time I got closer I struck Mr Salt with my offside wing mirror and caused him to come off his bike.”
Seconds later, while lying in the road, he was run over by a green Skoda Fabia driven by Elaine Hill, a nurse from Dalton-in-Furness.
In her report, pathologist Alison Armer wrote: “Although it is not possible to be absolutely certain which impact caused which injuries, it’s my opinion that this man was alive when run over by the second vehicle.”
WPC Diane Bowman, of Cumbria Police’s Collision Investigation Unit, and South and East Cumbria Coroner Ian Smith both said there was little Ms Hill could have done to avoid hitting Mr Salt.
And PC Simon Eyres, who arrived on scene soon after, said: “Elaine did an outstanding job bearing in mind the unfortunate incident which happened to her. She acted very professionally and remained with Mr Salt.”
WPC Bowman told the inquest that Mr Salt was not wearing a helmet or any reflective clothing.
Mr Smith recorded a verdict of accidental death at the hearing, which was held at County Hall, Kendal.
He said: “Mr Salt was in no fit state to be riding a bike. The drink is a factor, I have no doubt whatsoever about that.”

|On Thursday 12 April 2012 at 7:00 AM Location: A259 De La Warr Road between its junctions with College Road and the A269 Dorset Road|
|Lorry driven by Stephen Ramsden aged 60 of Morley|
|Notes moments before cabinet maker James “Jimmy” Cramp, 41, a single man from Clifford Road, came to grief were clearly captured in a sequence of “stills” from a forward-facing, closed circuit television camera mounted in the lorry cab. At the hearing on Wednesday, East Sussex coroner Alan Craze recorded a verdict of death from a road traffic accident as the result of severe injuries sustained when Mr Cramp fell into the road after riding along the pavement and struck his head on the carriageway. Police expert PC Adrian Short said that there was nothing to show that Mr Cramp or his Cannondale mountain bike had ever come into contact with the 16.55 metre articulated lorry being driven by Stephen Ramsden, 60, from Morley, Leeds, en route to a delivery in Eastbourne. The incident happened at around 7am on April 12 as both Mr Cramp and the curtain-sided lorry were heading west on the A259 De La Warr Road between its junctions with College Road and the A269 Dorset Road. Mr Ramsden said he had noticed a cyclist on the nearside pavement ahead of him and, as he drew close, saw him “starting to raise his left arm as if to pull something over his head”. This caused the bike to wobble and Mr Ramsden instinctively pulled away towards the centre of the road. He lost sight of the cyclist when he glanced in his nearside mirror, but then startled Mr Cramp’s parents by claiming that in another glance: “I saw him going back towards Hastings. He turned and went the other way.” Mr Ramsden continued driving and only found out about the accident when police approached him in Eastbourne. But because Mr Ramsden had seen the cyclist wobbling as he was passing, Mr Cramp’s mother, Jackie, cried out: “Any normal person in this world would have stopped to check.” The two-and-a-half hour hearing was briefly adjourned to allow Mrs Cramp to look at the CCTV photographs which showed her son starting to lose control of his bike close to the kerb. PC Short, an experienced accident investigator, calculated that it would have taken Mr Ramsden’s lorry just one-and-a-half seconds to pass Mr Cramp, and there were no marks to suggest he or his cycle had come into contact with the vehicle or that he had been run over. Instead, PC Short thought it was probable that as Mr Cramp began to wobble he put his right foot down to steady himself, but being on the kerb edge overbalanced and fell into the road, striking his head on the road surface. Damage to the rear of his cycle helmet supported this explanation. Coroner Mr Craze said it was all too easy in such a split second situation to genuinely mistake what one saw, as evinced by following van driver Shaun Hadaway, of King Street, Rye, testifying that he believed he’d seen the rearmost wheel of the lorry “clip” Mr Cramp as it passed. Mr Hadaway stopped at the scene after himself swerving to avoid Mr Cramp and then called the emergency services.|

Mr Holmes, 70, from Wareham was behind the wheel of his red Ford Fiesta when tragedy struck on May 4.
He said: “There was something light in colour, full in front of me. The next thing I knew was my front wheels were going over something; then my back wheels. I didn’t have the chance to brake; when I looked back I could see a body lying in the road.”
Michael’s mother Debbie wept as she recalled how her son’s dream had been to join the Royal Navy, adding: “One of his greatest passions was sailing. “Mikey was a lovely lad who was always smiling. His death has left a huge void in all our lives.”
Sgt Nikki Burt told the Coroner’s Court how there had been no evidence to support the prosecution of Mr Holmes.
Witness John Rogers, who was overtaking the Fiesta, said: “The cyclist began to veer towards the middle of the road. He left the pavement and went into the path of the Fiesta.”
His front-seat passenger Anita Krzynowek said Michael hadn’t been wearing a cycling helmet, adding: “As I looked at him he fell over”.
Another witness Kerry Ann Clark said Michael had “appeared to shake and wobble” before losing control of his cycle.
No defects were found on the car but there were signs of wear on the cycle’s brakes and the saddle had been loose, the hearing was told. Mr Payne concluded: “For some reason, Michael lost control of his bike. It would appear that the fall into the road occurred at the last possible moment for Mr Holmes to react.”

The van had no hands-free phone but records revealed Wrathall had been talking to Zara, 24. An automatic number plate recognition camera also showed him on the phone, a court was told.
Wrathall was towing his racing car at the time. As he turned into the roundabout he hit Mr Fingleton, who suffered serious head injuries and a fractured spine. He died in hospital later that day.
CCTV showed Wrathall was “clearly unaware” of Mr Fingleton as he overtook before cutting back across him. When police arrived he told them the cyclist, who was wearing a brightly coloured top but no helmet, had run into the side of him. The judge added: “The message must go out to motorists that when you flout the law in this way you pay the ultimate price by going to prison.
“It is difficult to understand why this accident happened except you were holding a mobile phone at the time.”

Frank Wrathall did not want to kill Paul Fingleton or anyone else. He lives in a society which allows him to do so. Every case in these pages brings up familiar aspects, this one is the sceptre of family man dies, driver gets short sentence.
Whatever Frank Wrathall's sentence, it should be the same for any person who speaks for 8 minutes on a mobile phone and then fails to spot somethging at a roundabout, not just those "unlucky" enough to kill someone
Paul Fingleton seems absolutely blameless here, apart from being stupid enough to ride a bike in England in 2012. His family should be compensated. Now I know they would rather have him back, but Frank Wrathall's insurers should be coughing up at least a couple of million quid here.
Only by moving costs closer to "point of entry" do we engender a more rational transport system.

The inquest in to the death of 19-year-old Lewis Monks, who died in a collision with a bus on Friday June 8 last year, found there was nothing the bus driver could have done to prevent it.
Witness statements and a 54-page police report said Lewis, who was on his BMX bike, fell off the edge of the pavement along Newstead Road near Asda and into the path of the bus. The 19-year-old sustained serious head injuries and his death was almost instantaneous, the inquest at County Hall, Dorchester was told. The court heard evidence from Lewis’s friends who had been with him at the time of the accident.
They said that Lewis had been drinking and had fallen from his bicycle and cut his face prior to the fatal incident.
Alan and Carl, who were both due to work that afternoon and were concerned for Lewis’s safety, were attempting to take him to his father’s house
A statement read out from the driver of the First single-decker bus said the accident had ruined his life but that he did not believe he could have done anything to stop it.
Muriel Walton, a passenger, said: “The driver was driving normally and did not do anything he shouldn’t have. It wasn’t his fault and I don’t attach any blame to him whatsoever.”

The bench heard that it was alleged the collision was a result of "a momentary lapse of concentration".
Magistrates were told that another car driver had passed the cyclist shortly before – overtaking him in the other lane – and had formed the opinion that though the cycle was not weaving about in the road, its rider was not safe.
The court was told that there were no aggravating factors to the incident.

He said he had seen Harrison on his bike and slowed down, adding he believed Mr Kirk hadn’t seen him.
The driver told the inquest he was travelling between 40mph and 50mph but forensic experts suggested this could have actually have been between 60-80mph.
A police officer from the East Midlands Serious Collison Investigation Unit said it was likely Harrison had misjudged the speed Mr Kirk’s car had been travelling at.
No charges were brought against the driver at the time of the incident but following the inquest, the coroner said the Crown Prosecution Service would be sent a recording to re-examine the findings.

|| Robert Cherry aged 79 of Walton, Surrey was keen gardener and steam train lover who cycled everywhere.. he was gGoing to get a newspaper died of head injuries later in hospital. ||On Wednesday 5 September 2012 at 7:37 AM Location: Rydens Road, between Devoke Way, about to turn into Ambleside Avenue and Meadowside || Skip lorry driven by Mark Hale ||Notes three occasions when her father had come off his bike after colliding with cars, once at the same junction in Rydens Road.|
the inquest, held on Tuesday April 16 at Woking Coroner's Court.
The court heard how PC Joanne Robins attended the scene at 8.18am. She said there was good visibility at the time of the accident. She said Mr Cherry was not wearing a bicycle helmet.
PC Robins said initial damage to the bicycle was a scuff mark on the right handlebar which was at the "right height" to have been caused by contact with the front nearside wheel arch of the skip lorry.
PC Robins said: "That has had an effect on Mr Cherry's cycling and has twisted the handlebars round by 180 degrees causing Mr Cherry to lose control of the pedal cycle.
"Both he and the cycle have then collided with the rear nearside wheel arch of the skip lorry causing the further damage to the rear wheel arch, to the plastic around the wheels, and the metal bar that connects to the chassis."
But PC Robbins added there was no evidence that Mr Cherry's injuries had been caused by collision with the lorry or from the road.
Mark Hale, the driver of the skip lorry, said he regularly drove the HGV along the 30mph road. He said it was difficult to say whether Mr Cherry clipped the lorry or that the HGV clipped his bicycle.
Mr Hale said he saw no hand signal or any indication that Mr Cherry was about to make a right turn into Ambleside Avenue.
He said: "There was no signal given to me whether he was going right or left or what he was doing. I assumed he was going to go straight on down the road to Walton-on-Thames.
"I had to compensate and as I went to pass the cyclist he started to come out further away from the kerb. I had to make a split second decision. I didn't have time to stop the lorry. I was doing about 25-28 mph when I actually passed the cyclist and had to make a decision to try and pass him.
"He was coming away from the kerb and as I passed the cyclist my nearside rear wheel was just away from the middle line. He just kept coming."
Mr Hale said he did not feel a collision taking place but stopped his lorry by Walton Park and ran back to the scene.
Mr Cherry had suffered a fractured skull and brain haemorrhage and was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting, where he died at 1pm the same day.
Mrs Hope said aside from a bad knee her father was a healthy man whose bicycle was his main mode of transport and he would rarely use his car. He would ride some 300 miles every week in all weathers.
She said he didn't wear a helmet because he felt it "a hindrance" and that motorists would be more cautious around a cyclist not wearing one.
Mrs Hope added: "He was just a lovely guy. He was just going about his business.
"He was always helpful. We were amazed at how many people came to his funeral. Nobody had a bad word to say against him. He looked after my kids very well and spoiled my mum."
Coroner Richard Travers recorded a verdict of accidental death. An examination of the tachograph in the lorry showed that Mr Hale had not exceeded the speed limit along Rydens Road. Coroner Michael Burgess said Mr Cherry’s death was due to a traumatic intracranial haemorrhage due to a fractured skull and ruled his death an accident. Laura Woods, from Brake, the road safety charity, said: “Cycle helmets are essential safety gear for all cyclists, and can significantly reduce risk of a serious head injury.

She sped off with his bicycle caught in the front grille of her car, stopping later to hurl it away. Sam died from head injuries in hospital that night.
Shortly after the collision late last year Butler arrived for her shift at a care home in Gilberdyke, East Yorkshire, staggering and slurring her speech. Asked if she was okay, she said “No, I think I hit a cyclist.”
Prosecutor Mark Kendall told Hull Crown Court that a fellow driver followed her because she was driving erratically, only to suddenly see “a cloud of dust and the Audi jerk about”. Moments later he saw Butler stop her car to remove the bike from her grille.
Butler, of nearby Knedlington, pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving while over the alcohol limit, failing to stop and failing to report the accident.

Keegan, who was riding a BMX, cut through the queuing traffic, near to the junction with Rose Street East, and crossed the road before being hit by a Ford Fiesta.
Giving evidence at the inquest, PC Gary Luther said: “It was unlikely that the driver of the Ford would have seen Keegan and it is unlikely Keegan would have had any view the of the other side of the road.
“The restricted view would have been made worse because of the style of the bike Keegan was riding.”
Keegan was an experienced cyclist.“He loved everything about bikes and he would always be stripping them down and adding things to them. It was the only form of exercise he could do. He died doing something he loved.
Recording an accidental verdict, coroner Karen Dilks said: “I was a very experienced cyclist and was very familiar with that area. However, on that day a vehicle had broken down, causing traffic to build up. This impacted on the visibility of road users.
“Witnesses said that Keegan rode into the carriageway into the path of the Ford travelling the other way.”
A post mortem examination said Keegan died of brain swelling which was the result of a fractured skull.
| Paul Kemsley aged 54 ||On Friday 5 October 2012 Location: Eastbound A30 between Hayle and Tolvaddon || Daihatsu van driven by Mark Entwhistle aged 35 ||Notes The court heard that Mr Kemsley had been wearing a yellow jacket with reflective strips and riding inside the carriageway’s white line. Witnesses saw the van veer to the left of the rumble strip until it was on the gravel, heading towards the cyclist.
The van had been travelling at between 47mph and 57mph when it struck the bicycle. It was in such a position that it would have been able to pass the cyclist without changing lanes.
Entwistle told police he saw the cyclist and planned to overtake but could not explain why he failed to act.
There was no evidence of speeding, mobile phone use, or other distractions.

The potential impact of adverse weather conditions was also ruled out as visibility was good and no road defects were found.
Mr Phillips' bicycle was also in good condition with no malfunctions.
Police collision investigator MPC Mike Lackey told the inquest that in critical moments cyclists and motorbike riders "often focus on potential hazards so intensely that they fail to take the necessary action and therefore hit the object directly".
Mr Lackey said Mr Phillips "failed to maintain the position on his side of the road" and believes a lack of riding experience may have contributed to his death.
Mr Lackey said Mr Phillips could easily have taken the bend without going onto the wrong side of the road.
He said that there was no explanation for Mr Phillips' decision.
Deputy Coroner for Cornwall, Barrie Van den Berg, concluded that this was "no silly risk" but simply a decision by Mr Phillips "that cannot be explained".
He recorded a verdict of death by road traffic collision.

Mr Howard, who was not wearing a helmet, had been tending to his allotment behind the Cheese Rollers pub, and was cycling home to Shurdington.
Police said there was no evidence to suggest Ms Sykes was driving in 'anything other than a normal manner'.
Although the road traffic lights were on green, he crossed at the pedestrian crossing outside the Cotswold Van Centre, first pushing his bike, then climbing onto the saddle halfway across the road.
It was then he was hit by Ms Sykes, who was driving home to Gloucester from work as a teacher at Pittville School.

Sumbal Javed misjudged an attempt to ride across Commercial Road in Stepney, colliding with a huge lorry after losing control of his bike.
The 34-year-old, who worked as a sandwich courier for Darwin’s Deli in Barnardo Street, Shadwell, died at the scene at rush hour on December 6 last year.
An inquest at Poplar Coroner’s Court heard he would have been dragged for more than 60ft after the initial impact.
Dutch lorry driver Leendert Spierings, who was driving the truck, broke down in tears as first aider Andrew Knowles told the inquest how he tried to assist Mr Javed.
“I went underneath to get to the cyclist,” said Mr Knowles. “His chest was crushed and he had no pulse. I realised I was unable to perform CPR. I asked the driver to put a blanket over him.”
