A lorry kills an escooter driver. So the police cracks down on all lorry drivers, giving them warnings and seizing their vehicles. Ofcourse not. They blame the escooter drivers and act against them. No one shall ever blame cars! www-telegraph-co-uk.cdn.amppro

I salute to the Netherlands when reading such stories.

@jwildeboer sadly yes. UK favours drivers hugely - the excellent twitter.com/bengoldacre has some epic rants about this at some point in his timeline (as well as generally epic rants about epidemiology and statistics in general :p)

@jwildeboer I don't know that particular case's details, but here in Portugal it's cringe worthy how people wholly unaware of traffic rules go from sidewalk to road in irregular and unexpected ways. It's a miracle it's not more frequent.
