Hold People Driving Motor Vehicles Automatically Responsible In Accidents With People Riding Bicycles

Hear, hear!

From our friends on the other side of the pond:

“Drivers should automatically be held responsible for accidents involving cyclists and pedestrians unless they can prove they are not at fault, road safety campaigners have told the Scottish government.

“In a report submitted to transport minister Derek Mackay, the charity Road Share argued that introducing ‘presumed liability’ for motorists could save lives, encourage safer driving habits and persuade more people to take up walking or cycling as their primary means of transportation.”

Can you imagine?
