Truck driver who killed cyclist was overworked, South Australia court hears
More playing the victim from the driver's lawyer - it's all the transport company's fault he was taking amphetamines & recording fake log book entries. Funnily enough his timesheets were accurate or he wouldn't get paid enough.
The reason transport companies can pull that sort of crap is because people like Sean Daley are willing to do so for their own reward. Yes the company deserves to be punished, but that doesn't reduce the drivers culpability.
Unfortunately, in today's world, it's always someone else's fault. The legal system encourages blame shifting.
