Re: RE: GOT AWAY WITH IT
Actually, he didn't remove his brakes, the bicycle in question was sold without brakes. It was not supposed to be used on the road and should not have been.
This was a very rare case. The guy is an idiot, no one is defending his behavior.
However, there have been many cases where a driver of a motor vehicle has caused the death of a pedestrian or cyclist though driving without due car / dangerous driving and completely got away with it.
