Dangerous Lorry Driver Highlights Dangers of Cycling on Busy Roads:

The trial of a lorry driver who knocked down and seriously injured a cyclist whilst talking on his mobile phone began this week in at Snaresbrook Crown Court. Petre Beiu, a London based Romanian, was charged with dangerous driving however he denies the charge, admitting to the lesser charge of careless driving.

The Times reporter Mary Bowers suffered life changing injuries as a result of the accident that occurred in November 2011 when she was cycling to work at the newspaper's HQ in Wapping. She has spent much of the time since in a coma and is still in hospital, barely conscious and with a bleak prognosis. Beiu has already been prosecuted in the Magistrates Court for offences relating to exceeded permitted driving hours and the misuse of tachographs.

This case highlights two issues – that of the dangers of cycling on busy roads and that of lorry drivers who knowingly flout safety laws.

Supporters of Mary at The Times have begun a road safety campaign "Cities fit for Cyclists" and have been lobbying at Parliament for more dedicated cycle lanes and other measures to improve facilities and road safety for cyclists. Hopefully this will begin to have an impact on the number of UK cycle accidents and bike accident claims.
