Barnet Borough Council says scene of motorcyclist's death in Crossway, Colindale, 'not dangerous'
A road junction where a young man was killed on a motorbike has been assessed by engineers who say the bend is not dangerous.
Amir Mustafa Mohyuddin died after losing control of a high-powered Suzuki and crashing into a wall in Crossway, Colindale, during an illegal test drive last year.
The 25-year-old, of Hillfield Avenue, Colindale, had taken out the bike, belonging to his neighbour, despite having no training or insurance.
The married minicab driver’s friend, Sachin Patel, gathered almost 200 signatures in a petition calling on Barnet Council to stop cars parking on the bend at the junction with Colin Gardens.
But following an inquest into the popular family man’s death last week, at which a coroner recorded a verdict of accidental death, Barnet Council confirmed it was taking no action.
A spokesman said: “An engineer assessed the road following this tragic accident and concluded that the crash took place on a relatively straight section of the road and that the presence of yellow lines to restrict parking would not have prevented the accident occurring.”
A Facebook group set up after Mr Mohyuddin’s death attracted more than 300 members and his family say he is sorely missed.
His sister Tahira Kashif said: “Amir was a caring person whose smile was so infectious. He would go out of his way to help anyone.
“He cared very deeply for his family and friends and he had a beautiful life that he lived to the full.
“He is very deeply missed by all of us. He has left a big void in our lives. May he inshallah (with God's wish) continue to bloom from heaven.”
