Wrong side of the road
« on: Oct 06, 2019, 03:31:11 PM »
American woman drives out of RAF base on wrong side of the road and kills a young lad.
I reckon as she drove out she thought for a fleeting moment she was in USA again and so was on right side of road.
That would be a big defense if she ever returns to UK

No defence whatsoever.

It could be used as mitigation in her sentencing.

Funny how Brits can be extradited to the USA but not the other way round.
Make every day count, each day is precious.

It's easily done. I'd been in the US for 8 yrs and came home to visit. Driving late at night into the town centre I found myself going round a roundabout the wrong way! No other traffic fortunately but a policeman waved me down and surprised me by accepting my explanation and apology.

I thought it was the diplomats who had immunity. Does that apply to all their deadbeat relatives as well?
