The Road Share Steering Group


The wider purpose of the steering group is to determine a consensus on the issue of presumed liability amongst cycling, pedestrian and other outside stakeholders.  Using evidence-based research, it will provide a forum for discussion and a platform for debate while working towards the production of a written policy statement with a clear direction of intent that will be presented to Scottish Government, Transport Scotland officials, and MSPs.  This should also conceivably form the basis of a Member’s Bill that could be introduced to Holyrood.
