Throughout 2012, there has been lots of discussion on the issue of cycling safety in Cardiff.
There was the news that the number of cyclists killed or seriously injured on Wales’ roads had jumped a dramatic 74% between 2010 and 2011, and that just over a fifth of all accidents where a cyclist was killed or seriously injured happened in Cardiff.
Tensions between those on two wheels, those on four, and those on foot were further exposed in a heated debate following South Wales Police’s announcement that they would be cracking down on “pavement cyclists” in Canton back in August.
And Cardiff’s annual naked bike ride was hit by controversy when Cardiff Council refused to support it – a move which organisers said left many of the participants at risk in an event that was supposed to draw attention to road safety issues.
As 2012 draws to a close, we have once again been contacted by cyclists worried about the dangers of the city’s cycle network. So, what do you think about cycle safety in Cardiff?
