The police have been FAB i honestly can say i cannot fault them, they are really pushing this case and doing everything they possibly can to make sure this gentleman has to take responsibility for his actions..
Must admit when i heard was really thinking ohh god is it really worth all this hassle .. but then had a good think and thought next time might not have been so lucky for the next person he decided to drive past and abuse like this.. so fingers crossed all goes well and maybe a small piece of justice can be done!! :/)
I'm so glad the police are taking this seriously and are doing all they can!!
something simmilar happened to me quite a few years ago a motor cycle rider who had a passenger with no helmet on!!!!! came speeding down a narrow lane slammed on his breaks which squealed and spooked one of the most quiet horses that I knew and the Bike ended up hitting the horse. thankfully Bouncer was ok no serious injuries the Bike rider started screaming and shouting at us to control our horsers and it turned out the bike should not have been on the road as there was no tax on it. all this came about after we had phoned the police who were fab by the way
the guy tried to plead not guilty to speeding and driving with undue care and attention..... he ended up pleading guilty as there were 5 statements from me and my fellow riders not to mention a statement from one of the people who live in the lane who had seen it all against his and the passengers
