Which world do you drive in? Because I cycle myself I pay particular attention to other cyclists, but plenty of them are not visible. Riding at dawn or dusk (i.e. too/from work) with no lights and dark clothes means no-one can see you. So "I didn't see you" is not necessarily an excuse, but something to be reasonably expected....

I can see the point you are arguing. But in fairness to Leoithrix, he was not even hinting at taking out the judgement of the court. If he had then I would be agreeing with you.
