300 hours community service is not enough for killing someone.
Appalling victim blaming in that article with references to having no light and wearing dark clothing. It's a straight section of road with clear visibility up the hill. The driver could see her but turned anyway misjudging her speed (it's a steep downhill and +60kmh is achieved by just rolling along).
So reading about her injuries, and remembering the horrific picture in the Daily Mail, she bled out on the road from a cut to her neck.
I wonder if anybody intervened to try to stem the bleeding, or did they panic and not know what to do? We'll never know. Such an utter waste.
The excuse-making on behalf of the driver angers me profoundly. Essentially, he wasn't keeping a proper lookout for bike riders so failed to register her presence - same as it ever was.
