Make motorist automaticaly liable for collisions with cyclists/pedestrians

A no fault liability system should be applied to cyclists/pedestrians unless a motorist or vehicle driver is able to demonstrate total or partial fault on the part of a cyclist/pedestrian.

The above is standard practice and law in many European/EU Countries

Although this may create, at the outset, a feeling of favouritism this would have the effect of making motorist more cautious to-wards parties who do not have the benefit of protection of airbags and protective compartments around them.

Why does this idea matter?

It would make cycling and walking more attractive and help people become fitter and help reduce car use
