- The Emma Way punishment poll
A fine and ban.
Made to cycle while banned and taken on an awareness course.
Then she’ll have to come on a few night rides in the Peak District with us girlies on a very uncomfortable saddle.
I’m fed up now with the attitude of (mainly female) young drivers to cyclists on the road.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
I’d vote she ride along Old St through Clerkenwell into Holborn and through Covent Garden at or in rush hour on a BorisBike wearing a pink tutu and shiny red slippers, a white leotard and blue scarf carrying a Harrods bag and with earphones in playing 99 Red Balloons, loud.
CCTV will catch it all and should post it on farcebook.

Pending the outcome of the court appearance, I think there was a move from within the club to invite Ms Way out on a ride, beneficial all round really.
Helps to highlight the issues too in a non “Burn her” 🙄 way
She was very silly, thus far she has shown only remorse for getting caught. Engaging with the cycling community can only be a good thing for her rebuilding her reputation…… you never know, she may even enjoy itPosted 4 years agopiedi di formaggioSubscriber
Well, she’s up in court tomorrow to answer charges of driving without due care and attention and failing to stop after an accident.
If found guilty (yeah, yeah, innocent until proven and all that!), what do we think the punishment should be?
I’m sure we can come up with something creative here, with or without the aid of bombers!Posted 4 years agohatterSubscriber
She’s not evil, didn’t hit the guy deliberately and the damage wasn’t severe, much as her ignorance, arrogance, false regret and borderline psychotic lack of human empathy practically made steam come out of my ears at the time jailing the silly bint isn’t going to do anyone any good.
However, she has demonstrated in a pretty categorical manner that she should not be trusted behind the wheel of a few tons of rapidly moving steel on a public highway.
So, a reasonably hefty fine, damages to the poor chap who she hit and a minimum 5 year driving ban should be a proportionate way to do it.Posted 4 years agopingu66Member
‘cyclists’ are people just like her
Um no they aren’t I would think another cyclist would stop and see if the cyclist the ran off the road was ok and then not tweet about it afterwards.
She is a low life and all is she probably thinks is “shit I got caught” rather than “Hmm cyclists are people too, just like me, and most probably do pay VED (car tax) so I was wrong and in a moment of madness”Posted 4 years agoThe PinksterSubscriber
She should be made to go for a decent club ride once a week for the next 2 years with a bunch of really nice & friendly cyclists so she can see what lovely people we all are and appreciate just how much like real people we are. 😀

Before anyone gets too wound up at the courts / magistrates tomorrow:
(1) She would only be sentenced tomorrow if she pleads guilty. If she pleads not guilty, trial dates will be set but the case will not conclude tomorrow.
(2) Assuming a guilty verdict: The penalties open to the court are: fine + points or fine + disqualification. Due care and attention caries 3-9 points. Failing to stop carries 5-10. Points are only added for one offence (the failing to stop is most likely in this case). There is no upper limit to disqualification but long bans are unusual for first offenders. If she pleads guilty, sentences are discounted to reflect the utilitarian value of not having a trial – otherwise everyone would go to trial on the hope the prosecutor cocks up.
(3) These laws are set by parliament and just implemented by the court.Posted 4 years ago
