EXCLUSIVE: Double killer Bradford driver, 23, urges other 'idiots' behind the wheel to consider consequences of their actions

A DRIVER whose speeding led to the deaths of a driver and passenger in a minicab has expressed his remorse before he is jailed and urged other “idiot” motorists in Bradford to slow down.
Ismail Miah will be sentenced later this month for his role in a three-vehicle crash onShipley Airedale Road that killed Manningham Taxis driver Mirza Abdul Malick, 64, and his passenger, former antiques restorer Paul Hayward, 55, shortly before 11am on Saturday, January 2 this year.
Last month, Miah, 23, of Springfield Place, Manningham, and Muhammad Sikder, 27, of Sylhet Close, Manningham, appeared at Bradford Crown Court and pleaded guilty to two charges of causing death by dangerous driving.
Judge Jonathan Durham Hall warned the pair they will be locked up and remanded them on bail until the sentencing hearing.
Miah has now urged all drivers to think of the consequences of their actions - and has backed the Telegraph & Argus Stop The Danger Drivers campaign.
He also apologised to his victims’ families and said in future he wanted to go into schools to warn children of the dangers of speeding.
“I recognise a lot of bad driving since the accident,” he said. “To be honest, I think ‘what an idiot’. You look at it and think ‘bad move, bad decision, why are you doing it?’ It is unnecessary.”
He added: “They need to, in order to understand consequences, see someone go through the consequences. Weigh it up - is it worth putting your foot down for these consequences.
“People need to speak to someone like myself. Then they can understand.
“Stop driving like idiots. Think before you put your foot down.”
On his victims’ families, Miah said: “There are no words that can describe how sorry I am to them. I can only say I am sorry.
“There is nothing I can say that they would accept. They have lost someone.
“I feel 100 per cent remorse. I find it hard to explain.”
Miah, who said he and his friends had donated a well in Pakistan in Mr Malick’s name, said he wanted to see an end to dangerous driving in Bradford.
