Default Pavement motorist injures woman.

It could so easily have been a cyclist victim and it clearly shows that
pavements are not that much safer than roads.

"Man arrested after woman hit by car in Bedminster

A woman in her 20s has been injured after a car came off the road and onto
the pavement in Bristol.

Emergency services were called to Cannon Road, in the Bedminster area of the
city, at 13:15 BST on Sunday.

An Avon and Somerset Police spokesman said the area had been cordoned off
while officers investigated the scene.

"The woman's injuries are not thought to be life threatening. A man, also in
his 20s, was arrested in connection," the force spokesman added."

Yes but they are not nearly as dangerous as millions of cars on pavements
every day. Cars may not seem dangerous when they are parked on pavements but
they only have to move a short distance slowly to be able to kill someone
easily, and sometimes they do. Of course, cars crashing on pavements and
damaging buildings, which they often do, are much more lethally dangerous
than bicycles being ridden on pavements.

Motorists try to blame cyclists for pavement use because they want to try to
brush their own pavement use under the carpet.

There is a massive difference between deliberate use of the pavement by
cyclists and inadvertent use by motorists , mainly the one of intent. I
regard an injury caused by someone deliberately taking an action as being
more serious than an injury caused by someone accidentally taking an action:
Just the same as any reasonable man and the law.

Millions? Do you have the figures to back that up SFB?

Cars may not seem dangerous when they are parked on pavements but
they only have to move a short distance slowly to be able to kill someone

How often?

What pavement use is that?

You forget, motorists intentionally drive onto a pavement in order to park
there, during which they pose a risk to pavement users. Sometimes motorists
also have to drive along the pavement to a parking place. It can also be
argued that the moment a driver climbs into his car and drives off there is
intent to use a highly dangerous machine in public places, thus posing a
risk to others and especially when there is loss of control of that machine.
