Court in the act

Posted by

Yesterday was the criminal court case relating to my car accident in November last year, with the other driver having been charged with careless driving. I won’t go into too many details, though the case has now been heard and is public information. Having never been in court, I didn’t know what to expect, or how I’d react being confronted with the other driver. The legal process is very…officious. The magistrates court was larger than I imagined, with a metal-barred dock, witness stand, and the magistrates seated above us all. It was both interesting, to witness the procedure, and emotional to hear certain details of an event that I don’t remember. As witnesses gave evidence I imagined the scene in my head, running like a movie, with key words like explosion, disintegration, spinning, disappeared, stillness, and screaming appearing on screen like subtitles. Tiring and stressful, but its done now. The Magistrate found the other driver guilty as charged.
