Roads are for legal cars and legal bikes ( with lights and reflectors ) pedestrians have footpaths
I wouldn't buy a green black or dark coloured car - that's my choice.
I wouldn't buy dark cycle gear -- that's my choice
I won't force my choices on other people.
The car driver can wear whatever they want but compulsory CPR training would be beneficial for suicidal cyclists and pedestrians who jump or cycle out in front of cars from side roads etc ( as I almost did )
Actually, roads are rights of way. Except for motorways, and other special roads, pedestrians and cyclists use them by right. Drivers can only drive on them with a licence to do so and a vehicle with correct insurance and paid VED.
Just so. Those who doubt it may come to West Wales where many, many small villages have grown up around the cart tracks that are now roads. The nature of the track (between high turf-clad walls, roadside house,s narrow and bendy) means that there are long stretches where there's no footpath and nowhere to put a footpath without narrowing the road to one car width.
Now, I would have the one car-width roads and a double footpath .... but this is not going to happen for the usual reasons of financial and cultural inertia. Therefore those who live in West Wales must deal with numerous pedestrians walking from A to B down these narrow, bendy roads sans footpath. Many drivers are careful and considerate of such peds, not least because they are sometimes the peds too.
But others are not careful and considerate. As a result there are frequent near misses and, sadly, some hits. All the roads about the place have signs saying "N casualties from 2013 - 2017" (the last count, I presume). Even roads as short as a couple of miles have such signs announcing casualty numbers in the mid-teens, not single figures.
A month ago a neighbour in our village (which is around 1,5 miles long on a B-road with a foolishly high "limit" of 40mph for such a stretch with numerous gateways and side roads) was hit by the wing mirror of a van and then brushed by a following lorry as she staggered a bit from the blow. Luckily (I suppose) just severe bruising and a nasty shock .... but another couple of inches and it could have been fatal. Neither vehicle stopped. They were both doing over 40mph in her estimation, with the lorry tailgating the van.
There is a current cultural assumption that motorised drivers "own the road". No one gainsays this stupid assumption except a few oldpharts cyclists on forums such as this.
