Which group endangers pedestrians the most…
"Cyclists or drivers? If you believe the tabloid press, it’s often
the former. But the statistics tell a different tale. According to figures released this week
there have been 364,082 pedestrians injured by drivers over the last
ten years, compared with 2,623 injured by cyclists. The same data shows
that, as a pedestrian, you are 263 times more likely to be killed by a
driver than a cyclist – this despite the fact that cyclists and
pedestrians often share the same space and much of motor vehicle
mileage is made on motorways, where pedestrians are prohibited."
