Adult pedal cycle casualties in South Australia

Characteristics of adult cyclist casualties (as reported to the police) in South Australia, and how they have changed over the period 1981-2004, are examined. In 1981, pedal cyclist casualties were mostly children and teenagers. In 2004, pedal cyclist casualties were mostly spread across the age range from 16 to 49. Adult pedal cyclist casualties reached a maximum in 1987-1990, and then fell. The main sets of results in the present paper are grouped as the crash site and events, the motor vehicle and its driver, and other factors (including the pedal cyclist). There is also discussion of sources of accident data other than the police, and of speed limit reduction and cyclists sharing paths with pedestrians as accident prevention measures. (a)
