Does that mean that a zonked-out sixteen year old, no hands on the bars, spliff in mouth, can ride straight across a give way junction and clean up when a passing car runs into him?
Well if insurance is the only issue after something like this usually that's sorted between the parents and the driver. (most people have like a small damage insurance (wappertje) that can be used to cover things like this, if it is one off.)I didn't think it still applied if the error reached the extremes of irresponsibilyt / stupidity - but I could be wrong.
That said, is it right that that that pedestrians should be severely maimed as a consequence of making an error when the error is minor and risk would be minor if it were not for heavy machinery in their vicinity. It seems the risk of the dangerous machinery is being born by the vulnerable - but they're not even benefiting from its use
But legaly it could be an interesting one
