A St Albans motorist was fined £100 after a crash left a cyclist seriously injured.
Tania Begum, 20, admitted driving without due care and attention when she appeared at Stevenage Magistrates’ Court on January 17.
The court heard how on June 23 shortly before 10.10pm, Begum had been driving a Vauxhall Corsa in St Albans when the crash happened at traffic lights.
Begum was at the junction for Victoria Street, Beaconsfield Road and Alma Road and wanted to turn right from Alma Road.
The cyclist was travelling along Beaconsfield Road and wanted to continue straight across, meaning the cyclist had the right of way.
