Back in January I reported the driver of a yellow Suburu car, L464XDG, for careless driving and threats directed at me when I was cycling through Hounslow. I now know the driver to have been one Levi Rayner. He evaded interview by the police for a long while but when finally caught up with he admitted the threats and was duly cautioned. He denied careless driving but last week when he got to court decided to plead guilty. I have just learnt he was fined £37, with a victim surcharge of £15 and prosecution costs of £85 with 3 penalty points on his licence.
I throughout maintained that he had been using his vehicle deliberately to seek to intimidate me as his subsequent conduct confirms. He thought I should be riding at the side of the road and felt justified in using his car to force me there.
I was not at Court - I was told he would be pleading not guilty - so am unable to comment upon the reasons why the sentence was just about as light as it could possibly be.
