CTC's Duncan Dollimore examines why a cyclist not wearing a helmet and other excuses are used to deflect blame in motoring offences, and why so many people, including judges, are unduly empathetic to road crime offenders.

Judge suspends prison sentence for lorry driver who caused a cyclist's death by careless driving whilst reaching for his mobile phone to listen to a sermon. Is it OK to be careless if you are associated with the church?

CTC has welcomed a commitment from Helen Grant MP, the Minister for Courts and Victims, to support discussions on how to improve the legal system's response to road traffic offences.
