One solution to bicycle safety

Postby il padrone » Sun Sep 22, 2013 3:11 pm

Canadian study of cycling injuries comes up with a surprising solution to the problem of cyclist road injuries.

This comparison of data was very interesting to read:
It’s therefore interesting to note that researchers found the incidence of traumatic brain injury was identical to a 1975 study in Calgary, well before the widespread adoption of cycling helmets.

A consequence of risk compensation ??
Riding bikes in traffic - what seems dangerous is usually safe; what seems safe is often more dangerous.

Shrug. Can't rule it out. Can't rule it in, either.
