Pathetic!
What a pathetic world we live in today.
No doubt now the old lady will file for compensation from the lads parents and plod will haul him and his father in to the local tea drinking office and threaten him with all they can think of.
Pathetic story!!!

Goodness me, Westbaywonder! Who rattled your cage this afternoon? Don't have a nice word to say on any story today do you! As a Radipole mum, I often see kids (not Radipole ones as they're older and in different uniforms), racing down the pavements on their bikes, often on the wrong side of the road, and have often thought to myself that sooner or later there's going to be an accident. Hopefully the head teacher of a certain large secondary school down the road might be spurred on to give a cycling safety chat to his charges, or else lay down the law. Hope the lady in question (and the lad himself) are soon on the mend.

It would be interesting to find out if he was riding on the pavement as well, if he was isn't it illegal? Compensation , bloody right as well!

Couldn` t agree me if on pavement fined plus compenation. A bikecycle is a the same as a motorbike except no engine both dangerous both fast.
During the past five years cycling has become a complete unregulated nightmare for others, jumping traffic lights, cycling wrong way down streets, no lights as well as cycling at other people.
I believe it is now time to tax cycling(£20 a year)to pay for cycle paths, fine for non use of cycle paths, no helmet and as per the road traffic act. Third party insurance.
This can not continue.
If this had been a vehicle that collided with this bike The Echo would have had a field day and the police busy filing reports for the CPS but not in this case.
On rule for one type of transport one for another.

I live in this area and i can honestly say, this was definiatly on the cards sooner or later. the problem being School start/finish, the amount of cars parked by Radipole school is frightniing, what's worse is Mums, yes Mums actualy park on the main road and get thier Children out of cars on the road side, clueless to say the least, bikes are the least of thier worry. that said, thier is a cycle way just opened which runs the lenght of Radipole road right alongside the school, so, pedestrians, bicycles, locals all trying to get home/school at the same time, accident waiting to happen, my betting is Mum chatting to her friends while Johnny hurtling uncontrolled down the pavement....... guess im 90% right because thats what the echo reported.

How many people have been hit by cyclists. I confess I don't know and I suspect you don't either.

You can make a case for 3rd party insurance. Then again you might easily extend that pedestrians, pet owners etc, etc.
