More cycling requires safer cycling

The ability to cycle safely is a prerequisite for cycling at all. Between 2007 and 2013, a total of 153 cyclists died in Sweden, the majority of them in collisions with motor vehicles. During the same period, over 44,000 cyclists suffered injuries so severe that they had to seek emergency care. According to a research report recently issued by VTI, the promotion of helmet use is one of the most important initiatives to reduce the number of cyclists killed or injured.
