Today AJPH published our invited editorial:
Pucher, J., Buehler, R. 2016. “Safer Cycling Through Improved Infrastructure,” American Journal of Public Health, Vol. 116, No. 12, pp 2089-2090. (Note: Invited Editorial).
The editorial 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. The editorial also examines the application of Vision Zero to cycling safety. Finally, the editorial introduces the two full-length research articles in the Dec 2016 issue of AJPH focusing on cycling safety.
