In fact if you cause a accident because of your improper riding you can be cited and sued for damages
I'm not sure how it works here.
It seems like the one with the insurrance gets nailed, no matter who's at fault.
Land owners get the same treatment.
Jump the fense, make a mess, trip and break a leg, go after the land owner's insurrance.
A woman was running on the sidewalk and ran into the side door of a pickup that was turning right on a green.
She had the right of way and they went after the truck owner.
The truck was almost at a stop when she hit. She wasn't paying attention and wanted to make the light no matter what.
That's how screwed up things are now a days.
