Re:Cycling in Urban environment: More needs to be done
The authors wrongly assume that the majority of the users of this
scheme switched from car driving, invalidating many of their claims.
What surprises me most are the relatively similar mortality rates
quoted in this study for cyclists and car drivers. In Britain in 2009 the
relative death rates per billion miles travelled were 34 v 2.8 (cyclists v
car drivers)- a 12 fold difference.
