The statistics on pedestrian deaths on pavements are interesting
I looked at this a while back: number of peds killed on the pavement per year by cars was between 50 to 80, average number killed by bikes was very close to zero.
LIke jumping red lights. Go and stand at Hype Park Corner or similar and count the number of cars who do it practically every light change. I'd like to see the stats for peds killed by cars jumping lights vs bikes.
Idiots are idiots regardless of mode of transport, and people have it in for bikes because the riders are going faster and getting fit.
People who lump all cyclist into one big, redlight-jumping, granny-scaring group are facists looking for an easy target IMHO.
