A Nurse Basically Tried To Kill A Motorcyclist When He Told Her To Stop Using Her Phone While Driving
Metro- A nurse who hit a motorcyclist with her car after he told her not to use her phone while driving was spared jail today.
Leah Keyworth was driving near her home in Swindon with her young daughter in the back seat when a motorcyclist verbally remonstrated with her for using her phone behind the wheel.
The court heard how Ms Keyworth, 42, then drove her car into the back of the motorcycle, before pushing and slapping the rider and finally throwing his £300 helmet into the road.
Both the helmet and the motorbike were written off during the incident, which Ms Keyworth drove away from without swapping details with the man she hit.
Despite pleading guilty to driving without due care and attention, assault, criminal damage and failing to stop after an accident and failing to report an accident, she managed to avoid jail at the hearing in Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court, and was given a 12 week prison sentence, suspended for one year.
Okay, here we go. Messing around on your phone while your driving is stupid, irresponsible, and dangerous. I still do it from time to time, but that doesn't make it right. Does it still count as hypocrisy if I admit it's hypocritical?
Regardless, the last person I want giving me lessons on safety protocol is a goddamn motorcyclist. If this broad didn't knock him off his crotch rocket he probably would burned through the crosswalk, winded his way through standstill traffic, got off on the nearest highway, and obnoxiously revved the speedometer up to 120 MPH just to "feel the wind in his hair". Fuck that guy. You know why he took it upon himself to play police officer and yell at a random motorist? It's pretty obvious it's because he was concerned about his own safety. A level of safety he likely doesn't hold himself to while he's popping the clutch on his Yamaha. The most logical explanation is that this guy crossed the wrong menopausal woman and made her tick when her biological grandfather clock was ready to tock. Still, he's an idiot for telling someone how dangerous driving while texting is then getting in front of the person he knew damn well was driving and texting. Guess what Mr. Citizen's Arrest, you just learned the risks of driving a motorcycle, because the best way not to get pushed and slapped by a stranger is to be within the friendly confines of a car. Now we are all aware of the risks that we take when getting behind the "wheel" of our vehicle of choice.
P.S. The real lesson to be learned here is to keep to yourself while driving, because you just might piss off a mother with her child, and there's nothing an infuriated mom isn't capable of.
