Those figures are way off (except motorcyclist figure)... 1792 total road deaths in 2016 (UK) from Department of transport.


816 cars, 448 pedestrians, 319 motorcycles, 102 cyclists, 107 other.

Think there would be uproar if 40k people died on the roads

''According to its estimates, 40,200 people died in accidents involving motor vehicles in 2016, a 6 percent rise from the year before. If the estimates are confirmed, it will be the first time since 2007 that more than 40,000 people have died in motor vehicle accidents in a single year.''


Then guess what, even though I selected UK at the bottom it says US statistics

That is scarily accurate :thumb:


At least on a bike you are dressed (hopefully) to protect yourself. Wouldn't fancy walking to work in full leathers.

Haha...dunno mate, my minds like a yo-yo keep deciding for a bike with my HEART but against a bike with my HEAD, main concern is safety and winter riding
