The good: There are fewer “More than 1,500 people were injured in bicycle crashes statewide last year, down from about 1,900 in 2012, according to Ohio Department of Public Safety data. “
The bad: Cyclists are getting hurt by distracted drives and there are more distracted drivers than ever before. Read the Dispatch’s take on this here
The ugly: “…when crashes do occur they get more attention…” More attention can present an opportunity to call for the changes necessary to put less hazard in riding a bicycle.
“Yay Bikes! totally responsible for cycling becoming safer in all of Ohio.”
Just kidding…trying to see if you’re paying attention. Good news is the state of cycling in the State of Ohio is improving in the area of safety according to NewsNet 5 in Cleveland.
