Spen, totally agree she has every right to appeal. I just hope it get thrown out of court as even if there are grounds for the appeal, the overall sentence is just.
If this woman is ever permitted to drive a car again (which in my opinion she should not be) then not only will she be very careful around cyclists, so will everyone she knows, as the gossip on the school gate should ensure not local repetition for a few years
Why should somebody making a lawful appeal against a sentence get me in the slightest bit upset.
She has every right to appeal against the sentence- as does everyone convicted of a criminal offence.
Whether or not it succeeds (or whether it should succeed) is a different matter, but I support her right in common with every other person convicted of a crime to be able to appeal against the sentence.
The right of appeal is part of what makes us a democracy.
