And people think cyclists are the bane of their existence!

You just know he won't get the sentence he deserves!  And he should never hold a licence again!  Not that that would stop him driving!

If he'd hit a cyclist he'd most likely of just kept going, maybe getting caught maybe not and dollars to doughnuts a lesser sentence prob after some meaningless and contrived excuses aimed at shifting blame.

Last year, I came across an accident on the Ebor-Armidale road where a bloke in a Hilux had gone off the wrong side of the road into an embankment, rolled, done himself terrible damage....but thankfully no-one else involved.

Turns out he was doing 150+ (on a road where 100 is pushing it in places), taking pics of his speedo, and texting them to his girlfriend.

My ambo mate reckons the insurance companies will still cover him....probably for life.  Incredible.
