On a list of the twenty-five most common causes of death, bicycling takes spot #17, with the odds of dying at 1 in 4,147 if you regularly ride a bicycle. The odds of dying in a car accident are much higher, at 1 in 272.
These statistics don’t, however really address whether bicyclists are the more dangerous drivers, or whether those who drive cars are the more dangerous drivers. The answer to that question lies largely in your perspective.
If you are a bicyclist who feels like you are forever dodging the much bigger hunks of metal, steel and glass, you are likely to believe motorists are much more dangerous on the roadways.
