”…the potential outcome of driving carelessly…”

…is…well, see for yourself:
Mohammed Haghir was sentenced to a 51-week jail term, suspended for two years.

Haghir, 55, was also banned from driving for four years and ordered to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work, after admitting causing death by careless driving.

Haghir was speeding in his lorry on August 17, 2009, when it overturned in Epping Road, Ongar, landing on 19-year-old Nicola Saxton’s Ford Ka and hitting a Skodia Fabia.
Wow! Bet that taught him
Investigating officer Sgt Dave Jones said: “…this incident should serve to remind those driving on our roads of the potential outcome of driving carelessly.”
Yes, indeed.

It’ll remind them that there are so few consequences, they might as well see if they can get away with it…

Mr Haghir was lucky to escape a gaol sentance. 'Lord' Ahmed actually had to suffer 15 days in an open gaol when he killed another driver. Until he was released early of course...
