Fine imposed on Fenland District Council road sweeper driver who collided with cyclist
THE operator of a road sweeper that collided with a pedal cyclist has been fined �250.
Anthony Bird was working for Fenland District Council when the accident happened in Peyton Avenue, March, on August 3 last year.
District Judge Ken Sheraton was told by prosecutor Emma Duckett: “He exited the junction into the path of a cycle ridden by the witness. The collision caused the witness to fall from his cycle and sustain slight injuries.”
Bird, 43, of Peyton Avenue, March, admitted driving a Johnson road sweeper without due care and attention.
He sent in a seven-page statement of mitigation to the court, which was not read out in court, but was studied by the judge.
