Default Another one killed on a pavement and a wall smashed!

This is becoming routine. Why can't drivers stay off pavements for a
change?

"Man killed when car leaves road in Hendon

One man was killed and another injured when a car veered off the road
and collided with them.

The incident happened at about 0200 BST on Sunday on Hendon Lane, in
Finchley.

A VW Golf left the road and hit the pedestrians, both in their 20s,
before smashing into a wall and catching fire. The second man received
minor injuries.

The driver of the car then left the scene. Police have arrested a 20-
year-old man and he is in custody at a north London police station.

Police are tracing the dead man's next-of-kin and a post-mortem
examination is due to take place.

Officers are asking anyone who saw the incident to contact them."

They try to.

I wonder why he left, and how they found him... Could it be because he
knew damn well he was in deep legal ****, and because of the plates on
the car?

Yeah, yeah, yeah! We should all move around on bicycles, electric
bikes and mobility scooters, even though even those sometimes kill
people. In view of the time of day and the fact that the driver ran
away, this was probably a drink driving or stolen car incident. What
were the pedestrians doing out at 2 o'clock in the morning?

This is very routine. Why can't cyclists stay off pavements for a
change?

Probably a witness who took the number plate. Shame cyclists don't have
plates so they can be more easily caught.

You're right, Doug. There ought to be a law against it.

Which seems not to be working. Maybe the penalties should be greater,
as more of a deterrent and no more slaps on the wrist or victim
blaming?
