Linkie

I hope they find the offender and re-educate her about her driving, preferably by removing her driving license and her car.

Collisions sounds worse. How often do you read "A cyclist was in collision with a lorry. The driver was uninjured" or some such?

We're not supposed to call them RTAs in A+E any more, they're road traffic collisions/incidents now. (In fact we're not supposed to call it A+E any more, it's the ED)

Some things can genuinely be an accident and there is no blame to be attributed but this is rarely the case. Was there talk of a liability law which made the driver of the larger vehicle responsible for the accident until proven otherwise. I can see that going down like a lead balloon with motorists.

Reminds me of the line from Bodies (2004) from Rob (the Manc .cynic): "ITU - they used to call it ICU until they realized nobody did".
