The facts that took place last January can be judged because the cyclist had activated the camera he was wearing on his jacket, images then posted on the internet where they went viral. “It is a rarity to be able to prosecute the perpetrator of such acts for intentional violence”, welcomes Michel Benezra, the lawyer for the association Mon vélo est une vie, which was seized of the case by the victim. “Today, he adds, in 80% of cases, when a cyclist is hit, it is voluntary. But it’s very hard to prove unless the scene is filmed.” The images show a narrow road in Charente-Maritime, between Royan and Sémussac. When they start, the cyclist has already passed the dump truck to which he has signaled to drive more slowly and to get closer to his side of the road.

He intends to use this case to change the law and mentalities, by pleading the hardening of the sentences against the drivers. In a press release, his association called “lovers of the little queen to come and support the victim, by attending the judgment in cyclist’s outfit.” The driver is liable to three years’ imprisonment and a fine of 45,000 euros. He was appearing alone, his son, less involved, having been the subject of an alternative measure to prosecution before the prosecutor’s delegate. send a message in favor of sharing open spaces and respecting the lives of cyclists”, insists the association.
