Along with the AA and British Cycling, Ms Gartside is backing 'strict liability' laws, which are already used in a number of European countries.
Under these laws, cyclists and pedestrians involved in collisions with other road users are considered to be the innocent party unless proven otherwise.
A motorist will be liable for a crash with a cyclist unless the motorist can show that the cyclist was at fault. This could include disregarding the Highway Code or cycling dangerously or without due care.
The UK is only one of four Western European countries that doesnt have strict liability to protect cyclists and pedestrians.
Sounds like a good move to me; what's the CTC position, and what do people think?
