4 dead, £180 and 6 pts

I'm still not wholly convinced that this was the "right" outcome of the case involving the driver who plowed into a group of cyclists on a freezing sunday morning in North Wales.
The court heard that the bald tyres were more likely not to blame (tyre tread helps by dispersing water, rather than helping on ice), but surely the driver should have been driving within limits of the road and weather conditions, and obviously exceeded them in spinning off the road.
