VULNERABLE ROAD USERS

EDM (Early Day Motion) 1140: tabled on 28 March 2018

Tabled in the 2017-19 session.

This motion has been signed by 91 Members. It has not yet had any amendments submitted.

Motion text

That this House notes the Government's publication of the Civil Liability Bill; supports the Government's intention to reduce fraudulent and frivolous claims; expresses concern that vulnerable road users (VRUs), including cyclists, pedestrians, horse riders and motorcyclists, will be swept up within the scope of the Bill and the broader personal injury reform package, despite there being no evidence that non-fault road traffic accident injuries suffered by VRUs include whiplash; further notes that almost all whiplash claims are made by drivers or passengers of motor vehicles; believes that VRUs deserve the Government's protection, as opposed to removing their rights to redress for injuries under Tort; acknowledges that under such reforms, VRUs suffering injuries below £5,000 in value will be unable to access a lawyer should they wish to pursue their rights of redress in the Courts; and urges the Government to take a pragmatic approach and remove VRUs from the scope of the reforms to ensure they remain protected on the UK's roads.
