The CTC and safety

London has seen a 91% increase in cycling since 2000 and a 33% fall in cycle casualties since 1994-98. This means that cycling in the capital is 2.9 times safer than it was previously.


Next week I shall explain yet again why that first statistic is complete crap. Which makes the third statistic meaningless, which it would be anyway even if the first statistic was true. And I shall also offer a critique of this latest CTC document (which seems to have been well received) and ask what it tells us about the state of cycle campaigning in Britain today.

In the meantime read this and this.
