motorists to be responsible in crashes
Government advisers are pushing for changes in civil law that will make the most powerful vehicle involved in a collision automatically liable for insurance and compensation purposes, according to a report in the Times newspaper.
If such a law was passed, it would make motorists legally responsible for accidents involving cyclists or pedestrians, even if they are not at fault. Likewise, cyclists would automatically be at fault if they collided with a pedestrian.
I know this has been around a while, and the responses from the Autocar bloggers (where this quote originated) is as expected, but still sounds a intersting idea.
