Who Pays for Road Violence? Rethinking Roads, Cycling and Tort Law
LLM Thesis by Ceslo Minoru Sakuraba (2018), Windsor Law.
During the advent of the automobile, every road death was a source of outrage. It was concerted action from the motor industry, organized in the self-named “motordom,” that managed to shift some of the blame for the deaths. This thesis explores alternatives to the classical car-centred understanding of tort law in Ontario. With an advocacy-oriented and comparative approach, it focuses on collisions involving bicycles and motor vehicles, with the intent of providing solutions that result in better distribution of the burden caused by automobiles on road safety.
