Fine is a sur­prise

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your Views -

There has been much de­bate and some dis­agree­ment on the sen­tence pased on Yas­min Kauser fol­low­ing the col­li­sion which saw a bus crash into the front of a build­ing in Broad­way, Peter­bor­ough. To be given a fine that amounts to the cost of a course that fol­lows a low level speed­ing of­fence for an ac­ci­dent that caused such in­jury and de­struc­tion has shocked many. But it is also true that ‘there but for the grace of God’ many oth­ers might go. That said, there will be many mo­torists read­ing this week’s story who will have been fined more for an er­ror that caused far less dam­age. >Mark Ed­wards >@PT Mark Ed­wards
