This primitive country I now live in takes the same attitude toward
injuring someone with a vehicle as they do to any other injury you

pedestrian, it is the bicycle's fault. If a car hits a bicycle the car
is at fault, a truck hits a car...

Note that this is "initially" and evidence may well prove the larger
vehicle not to be at fault, but it does, I believe temper some of the
aggressiveness that I read here about U.S. traffic.

That sounds good to me!
