    Should cyclists have insurance to use the roads?

    After a spate of accidents here in the UK involving cyclists who cause damage or are damaged themselves wouldn't it be a good idea for them to have some kind of insurance to cover them and any damage they may do?
    Please don't take this as a anti cycling question, its about responsible road users.
    Oh and I am a cyclist myself.

    Given the high cost of repairing cars not to mention people I tend to be in favor of all vehicles being required to at least carry liability insurance.
    I don't think the cost would be very high for cyclist and many of them have no financial ability to pay damages. If they can't pay their own medical bills that's their risk to take.
