Government’s “Pedal Cyclist Road Safety Factsheet”

You may not want to read this factsheet (and who can blame you?) but it does provide a national breakdown of reported cyclist casualties and deaths between 2011 and 2016.  One immediate fact that jumps out at you is:

Around 92 per cent of all reported cyclist casualties and 75 per cent of fatalities involved a collision between a pedal cycle and one motor vehicle.

Failure to look properly – 51% of cyclists and 69% of vehicle drivers – is also a feature.
