Warning after accident

Share this article

I AM 76 years of age and would like to point out an accident that killed my daughter last year.

It is that time of the year when the roads are full of motorcyclists and there are those who think the Highway Code was printed for others and not them.

You know the ones, they exceed the speed limit, cut in and out of cars, overtake on the inside and there are the idiots who lift the front wheel off the ground when doing about 60 mph.

You see them coming up behind you in your mirror and what do you do? You move over towards the kerb to let them pass even when they are exceeding the speed limit.

I would like to point out to drivers that if you see a motorcyclist coming up behind you, don’t pull over to the kerb, stay in line following the vehicle in front.

If the motorcyclists want to whizz in and out of the traffic and act like complete fools let them.

My daughter moved over towards the kerb to let one pass and hit the kerb.

This snatched the steering wheel from her hands, put the car into a spin and was hit by an on-coming vehicle. She was dead before the emergency services got there.
