Strict Liability Law for Motorists

Reason for signing

  • Cars are the source of the danger, and it seems reasonable that the onus should be on car drivers. Also, cyclists and pedestrians are likely to be in more immediate need of compensation after a crash (lost earnings and other expenses due to a hospital stay, cost of a new bike etc.) but getting the scratches out of the car's paintwork can probably wait. It therefore seems reasonable to streamline the process of claiming from the motorist's insurance.
