Roads massacre continues, no cause for concern

Another two cyclists were killed yesterday. But don't expect any national newspaper to join the dots and focus on the greatest form of lawlessness and violence in British society, don't expect any senior police officer to show any concern, and don't expect any politician to howl for tough action to put an end to this ongoing massacre.

A CYCLIST involved in a collision with a car on a busy Southampton road has died. The 27-year-old man, who has yet to be officially named, was rushed to Southampton General Hospital after a crash involving an orange Fiat Punto in Millbrook Road West shortly after 7.20am yesterday. He was taken to a specialist neurology centre but died last night.The 29-year-old woman driver of the Punto was been arrested in connection on suspicion of inflicting grievous bodily harm without intent and dangerous driving. She was released on police bail until January.


A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after a cyclist was killed in a crash yesterday.The male cylist, who has not yet been named, died of head injuries after colliding with a grey Renault Laguna in Low Levels Bank in Hatfield.

The massacre of pedestrians is even greater. See this, this and this.
