A taxi driver convicted of permitting the ‘car dooring’ which led to the death of a teacher from Leicester has had his appeal rejected.
In June, Farook Bhikhu was fined £995 for allowing his passenger in his taxi, who was fined £150, to open the door in such a way that it injured or endangered a person.
Sam Boulton was killed on his bike outside Leicester’s train station on his 26th birthday. He was hit by the door of a taxi and knocked into the path of a van.
I’m relieved to hear the court uphold the decision from June earlier this year. In July 2016 our family received a lifelong sentence, because Bhikhu parked irresponsibly to save a couple of minutes and took no responsibility for his passenger’s actions.
Despite Bhikhu’s major role in the events leading to the death of my son, his refusal to see how his action resulted in the death of a wonderful and talented young man, is almost as upsetting as the way the law trivialises car-dooring.
