The average motorist, stuck in traffic, is transformed into a one-driver anti-cyclist hate machine. After the death of another cyclist in Sydney, surely it’s time to take a more rational approach
The answer to any question containing the word “surely” is no.
Harsh but there it is. Cycling is an inherently dangerous activity. As is driving a car. Last number I saw were that regular cycling (ie commuting) has a 1 in 400 lifetime chance of causing death. And the lifetime chance of dying in a car crash is, if I’ve recalled this incredible number correctly, one in 100.
Traveling around is simply a dangerous thing to do.
