"Within the speed limit my son was killed, that’s what’s hard to understand.
"At a lower speed my son would have lived. My son dreamed of being a footballer but with his death his dream died and mine did too.
“It would be his birthday next month. It is going to be one of the hardest days of my life and I don’t know how I will get through it.
"But if we can be celebrating a change that could save other children that would be something.”Oh dear, so let me get this straight, a non-speeding bus killed this kid? How'd that happen?
Bus driver Sandra Thomas told the inquest she saw David just a fraction of a second before he crossed her path, and tried to brake and swerve to avoid him.Ah. I see.
...road traffic collision investigator Pc Adrian Vanlancker told an inquest at Barnet coroner’s court that a 20mph limit in Fore Street would be “unmanageable.”Well, d'uh! Though in rush hour, it might seem dizzyingly fast...
Mike Weston, TfL’s director of buses, said: “Any injury or fatality involving our buses is one too many. We are strong supporters of 20mph zones.”*sighs*
