I have covered this before, and this is nothing new.
Some of you may recall some of the posts I have put up in the past for example a drunk was lying in the carriageway at 1am in the morning and got hit by the car.
Driver was held 80% liable because it was deemed that the driver should have anticipated the possibility of a drunk pedestrian either wondering into or being in the road at that time of day.
In the case of cyclists, it s not uncommon for the cyclist to be only partially responsible because the courts have deemed that cyclists are in many cases their own worst enemies in the way that they ride, but car drivers (and other road users) have a duty of care and should have anticipated the liklihood of their being numpty cyclists or pedestians according to the area in which they are driving or riding.
This is not a dnagerous precedent, simply a precedent that was established about 20 years ago.
If you want worse examples than the one here, I will happily dig them out. There have been some real shockers and unfortunately, even now I still get them coming through where I would love to say to them “P**s Off,” but I can’t because of the cases that have gone before.
