    I wouldn't soil my hands touching such pondlife. The most most honourable thing she could do is to remove herself from the gene pool and top herself.

    She doesn't deserve to breath the same air as decent people

    This is why I believe road rules need fascist-police-state style enforcement. At least then, she'd get some time for driving under the influence of drugs if nothing else.

    Then WTF was the silly cow doing on the road in the first place?

    Wow, you have young idiots with cars in England too.

    While we in Florida, USA have to deal with 1/2 blind geezers that can't see 40 cyclist in the other side of the road.

    A result. This is from The Age - Melbourne.



    Woman jailed over cyclist's death
    July 25 2003





    A Melbourne woman who crashed into and killed a cyclist after falling asleep at the wheel of her car was today jailed for at least two years and three months.

    The Victorian County Court heard that 37-year-old Lynette Satalich had attended an all-night dance party and had taken one ecstasy tablet, two guarana tablets and some alcohol at the time of the crash about 9.25am (AEDT) at Brighton on January 28, 2001.

    Satalich's car ploughed into three cyclists, killing 52-year-old schoolteacher, David Renowden, instantly.

    Another, Hugh Lowy, 50, suffered serious injuries. The third cyclist escaped with minor injuries.

    County Court judge, Graeme Crossley, said Satalich had been awake "for all but a tiny portion" of the 24 hours before the collision.


    The judge said the substances taken by Satalich had no significant relevance and the Crown's case was based on the fact that Satalich knew there was a real risk she would lose control of her car as a result of falling asleep.

    He accepted that Satalich's feelings of remorse "were and remain profound as well as genuine".

    But, he said that driving when unfit as a result of sleep deprivation had been described by the Court of Appeal as little different in terms of culpability from driving while highly intoxicated.

    He sentenced Satalich to a maximum term of four years and nine months.

    Satalich, of Chelsea Heights, pleaded guilty to one charge of culpable driving, one of negligently causing serious injury and one of possessing cannabis.

    GREAT!!

    She would definetly not have received that sentence here.

    And another thing is that the courts there now show that if you drive reckless and kill someone (cyclist, pedestrian), you are going to have to face the jail time.

    My "hero of the week" - This judge.
