The HTA provision of Reverse Onus refers to civil, not criminal liability.

Civil liability answers the question "who is going to pay for the harm and damage?" This means paying for medical expenses not covered by OHIP, lost wages due to being unable to work because of injuries, damage to property, etc.

Under Reverse Onus, the car driver is required to pay unless he can prove that he was not negligent. The car driver's victim is only required to provide evidence to substantiate the value of the loss. For example, medical bills, repair bill for a bicycle, pay stubs to show the value of the lost wages, etc.
