Cycle Safety Action Plan

12 December 2013

There is much uninformed debate about cycle safety.

In London cycle casualties have fluctuated over the past two decades, but despite the recent headline publicity which may indicate the opposite, the general trend is downwards. The substantial increase in the number of cycling trips has been accompanied by a comparatively small increase in casualties. As such, the relative risk of cycling per trip is actually falling and cycling is getting safer.
