Anyone who has cycled around a city before will not be surprised by the findings of this research.
Pedestrians are probably the most dangerous element of my daily commute through central Bristol. They may be lighter than cars, but they stop more suddenly and change direction more unpredictably.
On a regular basis, pedestrians who have looked directly at me still fail to see me, and walk into the road anyway. As often as not, these people are using mobile phones or iPods.
I could go on forever about unobservant or careless people, but I won’t. Today. 😉
