The bill to codify the common law doctrine of contributory negligence probably has a 1% chance of even reaching the house floor. I think that the motivation is that friends of the insurance industry think there is some chance (maybe 1% as well) that the MD Court of Appeals will over-rule the doctrine when presented with the appropriate case. The Court commissioned a study on the topic.

The dreadful bill is an opportunity to educate on the unfairness of the doctrine, perhaps pushing for an amendment to exempt the small road users. The whole excercise for us would be somewhat like those straw-poll presidential primaries 2 years before an election. No penality for skipping the skirmish, but sometimes an opportunity for underdog to be heard.
