Mobile phones

The ride home today and this article about a hit-and-run tragedy reminded me of the ever present danger on the roads as we cycle. The hit-and run incident ended in a poor girl's death. Allegedly the driver may have been using a mobile phone. There was insufficient evidence and the verdict was accidental death. The family are understandably upset and feel justice was not done.

Myself, I spotted three drivers using mobiles whilst I cycled home. One, a young Asian girl, unbelievably, appeared to be texting and was actually looking at the phone not the road. Frightening.
