Hazardous drain grill/grate
Hi, I am a commuting cyclist and have recently had a bad accident as I rode my bike through a bus lane and over a drain grate that ran verticle and parallal to the road. I did this after a split second decision to avoid more traffic.
There are a number of such hazardous rain grills all over the island and I am trying my best to get local councils to replace them.
I have spoken to a lawyer who immediately said I did not have a case as I rode through a bus lane which in itself is illegal.
I am trying to find out more about this law all over Europe.
