Where are there "attempted murders" reported? The article that you link to is a case that is "sub judice" - under trial - and the defendant has pleaded not guilty.
The first sentence of your third paragraph isn't fair. Not only are your comments partisan, but
factually incorrect and I'm not sure they should be allowed in the public domain unless and until this chap is convicted.
You make reference to H&S standards, but it's a two-way street and just as there are "rights", there are "responsibilities".
A less than proficient cyclist should not be on the highway until at a suitable standard. They might choose to cycle in the park or somewhere separate until such time.
