Cyclist Crash Facts contains the latest summary of cyclist crash data including graphs and tables.
Cyclists have a number of risk factors that do not affect car drivers. The main risk factors are decreased stability and a much lower level of protection than is given by a car. In addition, a cycle is less visible to other road users than a car or a truck. These factors, combined with the condition of the road environment, give cyclists a high level of risk per time unit travelled, although this risk is significantly lower than the risk carried by motorcyclists.
