    from the tweets her testimony is all over the place,

    she braked and swerved to near side when she saw cyclist. Heard a clunk but saw him carry on so drove home.
    she was doing about 15mph and had pulled to the nearside as far as possible. Stopped and saw she hadn’t hurt cyclist
    “I did not think cyclist was hurt. I definitely would have stopped. My positioning was perfect,”

    So did you stop or not?

    Referring to the word “definitely” in her tweet, Emma Way says it was “slang” and how young people talk. “It had kind of annoyed me.”

    ah right definitely

    definitely
    ?d?f?n?tli/
    adverb
    adverb: definitely

    1.
    without doubt (used for emphasis).
    2. slang
    maybe (used to try and wriggle out of social media disaster/careless driving charge)

    PS is he allowed to tweet as it happens?

    I think tweets from the courtroom are allowed these days aren’t they?

    What is she actually charged with?

    Defence solicitor Simon Nicholls tells Emma Way trial “tweet may not be accurate and truthful and may not reflect what happened that day.”

    so the defence is my client is a liar and you cannot believe a word she says…Interesting tactic!!

    Charged with careless driving, failing to stop after an accident and failing to report an accident.

    I seem to remember a jourer get jailed for using social media to discuss the case he was hearing a year or so ago.

    What I find depressing, despite the number of cyclists killed in the last few weeks she thinks the worse thing has done is send a tweet.

    I suppose it saves the disruption of reporters constantly heading outside to file copy during a case.

    Don’t know how he can listen properly to evidence, write his main copy and tweet simultaneously. Must be superhuman.

    yeah, she still hasn’t learnt, whoever does her PR is useless.

    Depressingly, you’ve got to be thinking that it’s a given she’s gonna walk away without any form of conviction.

    So, between this and the recent tragic case near Henley, it’s official – hitting something coming the other way while you’re on the wrong side of the road doesn’t count as careless driving.

    They used to say driving is a privilege not a right, but it’s fairly obvious that the converse is now true……

    its **** shocking that the case ifs you can put your vehicle on the opposite carriageway, hot someone and this is an acceptable standard of driving.

    It also says they accept she hit them but that is not actually careless!!!

    I am leaving before I break the swear filter

    Emma Way fined £337, ordered to pay £300 and 7 points added to her licence for fail to stop and fail to report collision.

    I foresee a public protest outside court.

    On a more constructive note, as a sentence will be delivered that is a joke, I am going to contact legal complaints and try and lodge an appeal for screw up.

    I would suggest everyone writes to as many people to get this sorted,the system sucks, but it is the system. If cyclists continue to say nothing, nothing will be done to fix the system

    A fine and 7 points.
    FFS!

    so pissed off.But not surprised. Cyclists are treated as scum in this country.

    Turns out it was. 🙁

    (Oh OK, not stopping to leave a piece of paper with your registration number and name of insurer on it was. closely followed by the tweet.)

    FFS!!!!!

    Can the CPS appeal against the sentence imposed by the court?

    There is no right of appeal against a sentence imposed by a Magistrates’ Court. Whilst the CPS has no direct right of appeal against a sentence imposed by the Crown Court, the Attorney General is responsible for referring Crown Court sentences for certain serious offences to the Court of Appeal if he believes that a sentence may be unduly lenient. The power applies only to sentences that are unduly lenient and not to sentences that are simply lenient.

    So the legal system is stitched up again, drivers make the rules, drivers hand out the convictions, whilst everyone suffers!!!!!

    Can the CPS appeal against the sentence imposed by the court?

    it’s not so much the sentence I’m bothered about, no idea how not stopping should be sentenced TBH, it’s how driving on the wrong side of the road and hitting someone is not careless driving, very similar to the Helen Measures case the other week. How ****ed up is that?

    Premier Icon sparksmcguff

    Ok, given that she was not convicted of careless driving logic dictates (as others have noted) that she must have hit the cyclist on purpose – so was she even being tried for an appropriate crime. Surely attempted man slaughter would be what she should be tried for.

    maybe?

    I will have a proper read tonight,

    It looks like lots of letters to the CPS, on the grounds on natural justice, how can you be driving safely and hit someone on the other side of the road, might be the only shot.

    Have you seen the bbc website? Idiots. They make it sound like justice has been done.

    Premier Icon D0NK

    only thing I can think of is the cyclist was in primary so magistrates reckon he is partly/wholly to blame and poor Emma has just been a bit silly not stopping. if so a nice bit of victim blaming going on. ****s

    Emma Way refused to comment as she left court, saying she had signed an exclusive TV deal.

    good grief.
