Fucking cyclists

I don’t actually have a problem with this.

If a cyclist accidentally rides into my car and my insurance company sends him a bill for £150 for a broken windscreen, how is that different from when a car collides with me?

If the cyclist is at fault then why should my insurance stump up for damage caused by his negligence?

Sure, the cyclist in this case was only 12 but that’s not really relevant.

OK, maybe the insurers should have contacted his parents and not him, but shit happens and that’s just a smokescreen anyway.

What it clearly demonstrates is that we have untrained, uninsured cyclists on our roads and it’s high time that compulsory training and insurance for cyclists was introduced.

It might be green to cycle, but that doesn’t mean you can behave like a twat and expect not to pay for damage you cause through your own negligence.

Furthermore, if the kid’s parents allow him to cycle on a public highway untrained and uninsured then they should be prepared to cough up if his poor cycling causes damage or injury.
