UK: Crash Your Motorcycle? Pay For Road Damages!

Looks like the folks in Scotland are having a few problems with the elected officials. A 47 year old motorcycle rider hit a stray sheep on the road in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. He crashed, suffering severe injuries, while his motorcycle burst out in flames. The accident was not his fault and normally that would be the end of that story (apart from weeks long convalescence in the hospital).

However, the Aberdeenshire Council Open link in a new window decided to send the biker a bill for £200 for damages to the road.

Where do they get the gall to charge someone for road damages when that person is not at fault. If anyone should be charged, it should be the owner of the sheep. The Council people are without mercy. Their spokesperson said:

"We regret that the motorcyclist was injured but we contact individuals involved in accidents which cause damage to our property directly. It gives them the option of putting it to their insurers, or paying for it themselves if it's a minor claim and they don't want to affect their no claims bonus."
