drivers to blame!
well, in a hierarchy of road users they should be when something happens, unless it can be shown that they are not. So if a cyclist for example collides with a car the driver of the car is to blame unless he can show that he was not. This is how it is in France and in other countries - in Munich for Oktoberfest, which of course has just started as it is in September, they take it further - if a drunk person walks in front of a car it is the driver's fault, ha ha. Various UK commentators are getting their knickers in a twist about this, but a car is a lethal machine.
