Hate is not strong enough and the funny part is, that cyclists hate other all other cyclists especially when they are walking, the other day someone knocked another cyclist over, on purpose.
I had a woman yell at me while I was crossing a cross walk, the funny part was, that she was on the far side, so it had passed two lanes of traffic before I got near her and apparently it's was my fault that she had to brake.
Yeah Japan and I believe Taiwan the laws are similar. Shit rolls down hill from truck, car, motorbike, bike, pedestrian. However it is only the initial presumption of guilt if you can prove it was the softer road users fault you're apples. The old I didn't see him ploy doesn't work, if you didn't see him you weren't taking due care. Many cabs in Taiwan have cameras facing out at several angles, I assume it is for this reason. In Japan public servants can get the can if they cause a serious road accident.
