London: Cyclist Accident Maps


http://www.citybeast.com/londoncyclists.html

The maps lists fatal and serious injuries and I have put this link on the right hand side of this blog.

Just look how many accidents there are in just a small patch and these don’t even include near misses. The numerous accidents barely worth a mention on the news.

As you can see, the area around Bethnal Green is pretty bad but the side streets don’t seem to have that much. Fast cars and cyclist do not mix. How can we share the road with maniacs?

Bow Road is very bad, and often cyclists cannot even avoid it and I think that road is supposed to be on the crap new cycling superhighway. Perhaps it’s worth just walking on the pavements on the bad sections.

Bow Road has ridiculously narrow cyclepaths for the type of road it is and the road is very fastmoving and busy.
