Radley Biddulph, Putney, London, August, 2011

Radley was struck from behind by a bus driver whilst he was stationary at a roundabout. Radley had cycled past the bus whilst it was stopped at a bus stop before reaching the roundabout. He was wearing a high visibility jacket at the time and it was daylight.

Radley suffered a broken collar bone, a minor head injury and trauma. He was off work for 25 days.

The police had planned on sending the driver on a driver awareness course but Radley was adamant that a course was not sufficient punishment for the offence committed and wanted the driver to be prosecuted.

The bus driver was convicted of driving without due care and attention and received a £200 fine plus three penalty points, and was ordered to pay £85 court costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
