Road accidents involving cyclists 2014-16

Dynamo requested numbers and details of cyclist accidents in our district between 2014 and 2016 from Lancashire Constabulary and got a speedy response.  We received both a letter and a summary of the collisions set out in a spreadsheet.

Headline figures are that there were:

  • 38 collisions involving at least one pedal cycle in 2014
  • 29 in 2015
  • 17 in 2016.

Death and injuries of all types are lowest in 2016, which is good news.

The worst roads for cyclist collisions are:

  • Scotforth Road (10 over the period)
  • Greaves Road (5)
  • Owen Road (5)
  • Slyne Road (4)
  • Bowerham Road (3)
  • Torrisholme Road (3)
