Walkers must have rights, too
THE death of Celia Ward, a 77-year-old cyclist who veered off the pavement into the path of a car, was a tragedy.
But did Auriol Grey, the woman who shouted at her to get off the pavement, deserve a three-year prison sentence for manslaughter? I don’t believe so.
A cyclist has no business on a pavement. I’ve been hit by one in the past and have had to dodge endless electric scooters.
Drivers and cyclists demand to be safe. But we pedestrians need safe spaces, too.
