Denver cycling accidents on track for all-time record in 2012
From Denver Westword:
This year, through July 8th, there have already been 228 accidents, which nearly matches the total number of collisions throughout the entire year in 2011, and already has surpassed 2010 as a whole.
The statistics aren’t broken down by type, so they could refer to bike-pedestrian, bike-bike or bike-auto accidents. In 2011, DPD had 239 on record, and in 2010, the total came to 202. Assuming that more cycling accidents will continue to take place over the summer and into the fall — especially since there are more cyclists on the road in Denver — we can expect the city to not only break its record on bike accidents by year’s end, but shatter it.
