Sustrans is supporting the campaign of Aileen Brown and her family to challenge the sentence handed out to driver Gary McCourt on the 3rd May. McCourt was sentenced to 300 hours community service and a 5 year driving ban for causing the death by dangerous driving of Aileen's mother Audrey Fyfe. Audrey was the second cyclist to die as a result of McCourt's driving. The campaign is being coordinated by CTC, please follow this link and demand that this sentence is reviewed in the Court of Appeal. Aileen is a much valued and long standing Sustrans supporter. Sustrans Scotland has also written to the Crown Office asking for clarification on both the sentencing and the Sherriff's comments on helmets.
