Fixed it for you.


That I agree with 100% - but as I said, its all speculation.

It's not speculation that the cyclist was hit and the driver has been formally charged.

From the information that is available it appears that the driver was exceeding the speed where the vehicle could safely be stopped within the visibility and capabilities of the vehicle while on a test drive. We will have to wait for the conclusion of the court case to know exactly what happened
If the R-1 rule is broken, what happens to N+1?

Umm....

You do not see the subtleties of the distinction between these two activities? In public road safety terms?
