What made you happy today?

Recommended Posts

That's fkn weird.  This is a response to Chillidoggy on 14 June - you can see it above on this page.  I've just restarted my laptop after 8 days away, and the forum asked me to refresh the page to continue, so I'm guessing it was the last thing I did before departing.

So by your thinking should pedestrians take out insurance too? She was in the wrong and it seems strange to me that though the judge aportioned 50:50 blame one person gets a payout and tge other gets bankruptcy. Take away prejudice re cyclists and this is not justice. By this reasoning a gormless twat on their phone walks in front of your car and you're liable. Law is all about precedent and this is worrying. She is just anotger one of the "it's never my fault always someone else to blame" brigade. Shocking really.

Not a bad idea.

Cyclists should also have registration plates and pay road tax!! Whilst they do not, they think they can do what they like because there is very little chance of them being identified. 

As I said, don't care who was to blame, just reinforces that cyclists that are insured would not only be insured in the case of both blame and no blame incidents but also potentially spurious ambulance chasing claims.

I have witnessed people walking into bus stops and lamp posts while texting and walking. Makes my day because can't see how they can be so blindly unaware of their surroundings.

 

For the record, I text and walk yet can still see a solid 6 feet ahead. Use your peripherals!

Also, agreed, how does 50/50 still mean one side pays out?

Read in more detail. The pedestrian made a claim for compensation. The cyclist did not as he does not like the compensation claim culture. If the cyclist had also made a claim at the start of proceedings then the compensation and court costs would have been 50:50 each.

If I was the cyclist, given the judge ruled 50:50 I'd be lodging a claim against her right now!  She ONLY got £4k, it's the bloody lawyers who ran up the £100k legal bill. If I was him I'd get rid of all my assets and go bankrupt and then the lawyers would get nothing. Then I would sue her for my injuries The law in this instance really is and can be seen as, an ass.


Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!

On the way down to the car show, I was parked next to a Range Rover at the traffic lights. I had to crane my neck to look at the driver! Every vehicle is like the height of a truck. However after driving my Eclat for 30 years I am pretty used to it!

Face lit up "This is "XXXX from Germany he likes his sports cars and drives a Lotus Elise" 

There follows smiles and knowing looks across the room.
