I’m famous now.
you should get that framed
did some off-road yesterday. don’t think i’ve ever been so broken after a ride.
woke up in the middle of the night for a pee and couldn’t stand up haha
anyone have weird cycling dreams…? just weird feelings of vection and that feeling of travelling along roads
My wife (not a cyclist) has started having cycling dreams.
Ha ha! Unlucky.
She knows loads about pro cycling now too. Hates it, but could prob name half the peleton.
Absolutely loved my conversation with her at fenino last year about pro cycling. The eye rolling was great
Surely there’s more to this case than there is stated in the article?
For fucks sake
aye, was reading about this. it’s nuts.
if that was a driver there’s absolutely no way they’d have to pay anything
It looks like she walked out, while on her phone, into traffic, where the cyclist, who had right of way and was not speeding, swerved towards the pavement to avoid her and any traffic outside him, only for her to notice his warning and jump back towards the pavement.
Have I got that right? That can’t be it.
such a fucking mad ruling. the fact that it’s decided to be 50/50 liability, surely he only has to counter sue her for more than she had sued him for and she’ll be out of pocket
makes no sense
yes, yes that’s correct, yet the cyclist IS WRONG???
apparently he sounded his horn, slowed down and swerved to avoid her
what else is he meant to do
Her claim was based upon lost earnings (she is a city worker and yoga instructor), so I douobt he would be able to claim for more.
“Even where a motorist or cyclist had the right of way, pedestrians who are established on the road have right of way. Mr Hazeldean did fall below the level to be expected of a reasonably competent cyclist in that he did proceed when the road was not completely clear.”
Mauger said Brushett‘s conduct as a pedestrian must have contributed to the accident. “Ms Brushett must clearly have equal responsibility if she is crossing the road without looking – and if she is looking at her phone, even more so,” she said.
