"z jones, why are you placing more emphasis on increasing cycling rates over people's health and safety?"

I'm getting tired of this troll, but one last time:

As the number of cyclists goes up, the number of casualties goes down.

You ignore all the evidence supporting this from various cities and instead keep citing one fact on cycle tracks (not cycle lanes) from a study of a city that already has 50% trips by cycling and which in any case concludes: "The radical effects on traffic volumes resulting from the construction of cycle tracks will undoubtedly result in gains in health from increased physical activity. These gains are much, much greater than the losses in health resulting from a slight decline in road safety."

Please go troll some other board.
