If you’re a cyclist involved in a crash, don’t stick around
John Stevenson

Section 170 harks right back to the 1903 Motor Car Act when Parliament rightly recognised the far greater harm that a motor car can cause compared to a pedestrian or cyclist, and it also recognised that no impact was needed — the PRESENCE of the car causing harm, is enough.

Still just perhaps re-run the collision, with Alliston driving a car, Briggs stepping into the carriageway without looking and Alliston sounding the horn (twice) and steering to avoid a collision, with Briggs stepping back into the path of Alliston. Would there even have been a case made?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
