Re: Re: The Velibs are coming?
I think it comes down to a matter of perception, and not actual safety. This is my main problem with the helmet, it portrays cycling as something dangerous.
I would like to see current stats on how many pedestrians are killed or injured vs cyclists, and a more detailed breadown, but of what I can find:
In 2005, out of the total of 399 deaths on Irish roads, 71 (18%) were pedestrians while 11 (2%) were cyclists.
