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.
Bird had three points endorsed on his licence and he was ordered to pay �70 costs and a �15 surcharge.
