Cyclist paralysed by distracted driver misses 'the simple things in life'
Ellie Sibson ABC online wrote:A cyclist who was paralysed when a distracted driver hit him while reaching for her ringing mobile phone says his life has "irreversibly changed forever".
Katherine Roche was trying to put the phone on speaker and her children were in the car when she hit Graham Walters at Burpengary in August 2016.
The mother was today given a wholly suspended two-and-half-year sentence for dangerous driving and was also disqualified from getting behind the wheel for two years.
Mr Walters said he accepted the sentence imposed by the court and wants to be the face of a campaign against the use of mobile phones while driving.
He's a much better man than I.
Perhaps this'd be a good place to track the penalties for non-fatalities. (The moderators may wish to move this to Advocacy)
