Richard Lyle MSP


Richard Lyle is MSP for Central Scotland and is a member of the SNP


“The laws around presumed liability regimes should be looked at as we work to make Scotland a cycle-friendly nation.


“For too long, presumed liability for road users has been dismissed as too difficult or too contentious a law, but in a modern society that sees cycling as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle and sustainable economy, it is important to put this debate back on the agenda.


“If presumed liability can be shown to help improve road safety and provide protection for those injured, then Scotland should not be afraid to take a lead and change the law.”






Alison Johnstone MSP


Alison Johnstone is a Green Party member for Edinburgh for Lothian.


"Presumed liability is a contribution to a better culture on our roads where vulnerable users are better protected".










Tavish Scott


Tavish Scott is the former leader of the Scottish Lib Dems (2008-11) and member for Shetland.


“I’m happy to give my full-fledged support the Road Share campaign and believe introducing a strict liability regime in Scotland can help make a dramatic improvement in the overall safety of our roads for cyclists.  I think this is a real opportunity to demonstrate a commitment for making Scotland’s roads safer for all users.”









Patrick Harvie MSP


Patrick is a member of the Green Party and represents Glasgow North.


"There is a real need to address the responsibility that people feel. The responsibility that somebody feels when they are moving a tonne or two of metal through the streets must be substantially greater than the responsibility that somebody feels when they are moving a couple of tens of kilos of metal through the streets.Moving a bicycle through the streets at a modest pace is still a significant thing to do and it bears a significant responsibility, but it is clear that the responsibility of somebody who is driving a couple of tonnes of metal through the streets at a much higher velocity must be greater"






John Lamont MSP


John is a member for Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire, and a member of the Cross-Party Group in the Scottish Parliament on Cycling (Member)


“As a keen bike rider I am all too aware of the need for greater safety for cyclists on our roads. As we try to encourage people to be more active and to take up cycling it is more important than ever that we offer them the protection they need.


“Anything that might help to do this and encourage motorists to treat cyclists with more care and respect needs to be looked into as it could ultimately help to save lives.”
