ABC Radio National – Background Briefing: On Road Cycling

With a dramatic increase in cycling, comes a plethora of new safety issues on the roads. Doctors, politicians, planners and cyclists agree it will mean changing the way we design, govern and use our roads. A yet-to-be-released study on road trauma in the ACT shows that 98% of cycling injuries aren't being recorded. Radio National's Background Briefing has an exclusive copy of the study, which compares official police reports on bike crashes with hospital admissions.
