High-risk move

Have your say

Most readers and motorists will be alarmed to read a compensation lawyer beating the drum for a presumption of strict liability in favour of cyclists who are injured in collisions with motor vehicles (Friends of The Scotsman, 23 August).

Were car insurance premiums to go up and lawyers’ fees to increase commensurately, Scots might well regret any future change to strict liability provision for cyclists, one suspects. Fortunately, the present Scottish Government seems less eager to please the compensation lobby than previous Labour-led administrations.
