PRIESTS and car salesmen are among the worst drivers in the UK according to a recent study of 7.8 million insurance enquiries. Priests come in as fourth most likely to be done for sinful driving with just under three in every thousand holding a conviction, while warehouse loaders top the bill with seven in every thousand getting caught. Dangerous driving offences include drink and drug driving, aggressive behaviour, racing, ignoring traffic lights, driving while injured or unable to see properly, tailgating, driving while on the phone, overtaking dangerously and driving a dodgy vehicle, Money Supermarket found.

A LORRY driver who caused the death of a "compassionate" doctor has been jailed for 21 months after failing to see her through his cluttered dashboard. Robert Bradbury, 50, was found guilty of causing death by careless driving after jurors were told his view was obstructed by a fan and other items stored on an in-cab tray table. Cyclist Suzanna Bull, 32, was struck by Bradbury while she was three metres in front of him in the cycle lane and suffered "catastrophic injuries." She died at the scene on October 9, 2017 in Edgbaston, Birmingham. Before passing sentence on Friday, Judge Paul Farrer QC said he detected no signs during the trial that Bradbury believed he was to blame - and the trucker even said the doctor's death was "six of one and half a dozen of the other." The cyclist's father, Mr Bull, said the trial revealed an abject failure on the part of the driver, adding: "The lack of any apology or show of remorse was present for all to see."Dr Bull, a University of Birmingham … [Read more...] about Lorry driver who caused cyclist’s death as he couldn’t see her through cluttered dashboard is jailed
