Would you support an assumed liability rule for speeding drivers?

    I started a parallel thread in the cycling forum in which I posed the question as to whether or not people would support assumed liability against vulnerable road users as they have in many other jurisdictions in the rest of Europe. This is has turned out to be a good discussion.

    I would like to pose the question here as to whether or not there should be assumed liability for speeders.

    My proposal would be “If a motorist is found to have been speeding in the lead up to an accident, that driver shall be deemed liable, unless there is evidence clearly attributing fault of the other driver “.

    This would be a wonderful idea to eliminate the scourge of speeding. Speeding accounts for so many accidents and deaths on our roads.
