Driver nearly caused collision
A van driver who nearly caused a collision with a cyclist was fined Â£75 last Wednesday at Craigavon Magistrates Court for driving without due care and attention.
Ward Green, Carnbane Road, Lisburn, was also given three points and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy.
The court heard that on August 1 this year the injured party attended at Lisburn police station and made a complaint.
He said he had been cycling on the Newforge Road in Magheralin and intended to turn right, putting his right arm out and moving into the middle of the road.
A van overtook and almost caused a collision with the injured party and another cyclist.
Cycle helmet footage showed the incident as the van went to overtake and caused the injured party to swerve.
A defence solicitor said his client accepted his driving fell below the accepted standards.
