The bill is designed to protect the most vulnerable road users and to reflect a hierarchy of road users. It would be applied in Civil Law cases for road traffic collisions between motorists and cyclists or horse riders and similarly between cyclists and pedestrians. To that end, the campaign also sets out to highlight the dangers cyclists and horse riders face from motorists and help facilitate a change in attitude amongst road users to one based on mutual respect and understanding.
We are only one of a very small number of countries across Europe (Romania, Cyprus, Malta and Ireland) who do not operate such a system of strict liability for vulnerable road users and yet it is not unprecedented in UK law.

Please pass this member's bill for presumed liability between motorists, horse riders, cyclists and pedestrians.
We need to change attitudes, create mutual respect and understanding amongst different road users and ultimately make the roads in Scotland safer for me, my children, my grandchildren and my friends.
