Closed petition A law of presumed liability to protect vulnerable road users like cyclists

Adopt a system whereby, in the event of an incident, the liability for the incident falls on the larger vehicle. It will be up to the larger vehicle to prove that it was not their fault.

More details

For the sake of the environment, the nation's health, to alleviate the burden on the NHS and for the sake of our economy we need to encourage more people to get on their bikes and to walk. By introducing legislation whereby the larger vehicle is presumed to be at fault in the event of an incident, drivers should be more inclined to show greater respect for other road users.
