Road Rule 81 is still in the same terms Jim & yes I do the same. Many people will remember Sophie Delizio whose second "accident" happened while she was being pushed across a pedestrian crossing in a wheelchair. The fact that the driver pleaded guilty to dangerous driving occasioning GBH did not alleviate her injuries, being a heart attack, a broken jaw, a broken shoulder, bruising to her head, numerous rib fractures and a tear to her left lung.
