I think that's a bit harshI think cyclists that run red lights DESERVE to be run over.
It's sad someone died, and if the driver had not been texting perhaps they would be alive.
They would also be alive if they hadn't riden through a red light.
Fair enough in this case it's a kid so a bit different, but when I see adult cyclists just ignoring the rules it really does annoy me.
Quick question? Do you deserve to die every time you exceed the speed limit? Or are you allowed to break the rules?
We don't know the full circumstances. A cyclist can't get through the lights as quick as a car. They may have just changed as he/she went through them as apposed to being on red quite a while when he/she decided to go through them. The driver could also have jumped the gun slightly setting off as soon she spotted the other light going to red. I see that happen most days on my way to work. Loads of people do it at J40 M1. You can clearly see the other lights go to red. The amount of people that set off then is unbelievable
