Safer Cycling through Improved Infrastructure

Source: American Journal of Public Health

This lead editorial on cycling safety from the Dec 2016 issue of the American Journal of Public Health provides data on trends in cycling safety for New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Washington (DC), Cambridge (MA), San Francisco, Seattle, and Minneapolis. It also reports the much greater safety of physically protected/separated on-road bikeways called "cycle tracks" in the cities of Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. It shows how the largest US cities compare in terms of cycling levels, cycling safety rates, and cycling infrastructure expansion from 2000 to 2015. The editorial also examines the application of Vision Zero to cycling safety. The editorial introduces the two full-length research articles in the Dec 2016 issue of AJPH focusing on cycling safety.
