I am a pedestrian and feel like an underdog to cars and even bikes at times on public roads and towpaths

It's about time the UK governments to some action on this - it is long long overdue!

We have a hierarchy of users on our waterways, there should so obviously should be a similar one for roads

I am a pedestrian, a cyclist and a car driver so feel I can speak from several perspectives when I say that believe that on the roads, we need to do more to protect those road users who are potentially the most vulnerable and so fully support this petition. I think parallels here can be drawn with the Scottish Children's Act and Adult Support and Protection Act, where extra care is extended to these members of society due to their intrinsically more vulnerable nature. It would be fantastic if Scotland could lead the way, in the UK, on the issue of protecting the most vulnerable road users. Thank you.

Vulnerable road users have little defence or redress currently. Drivers are becoming increasingly aggressive and dangerous viewing their passage as a right that the vulnerable hold up or take away

I'm signing because of Daniel, a young cyclist in our bike club in East Kent, who was killed by a speeding van driver who was on his phone texting at the time. The driver got away scot-free.

When I learned to drive my instructor saved me from hitting a cyclist at least once. And very soon after I passed my test one hit me. Awful experience.

I’m sick of motorists trying to kill me so they can spend another 8 seconds waiting at the next traffic lights.

We all share the road and there is not negative effect of cycling a bike ever.

I want vulnerable road users to be more protected. Ir is common sense that if you drive the more dangerous vehicle, you should be liable for your actions
