In a previous thread, racer asked if there were any stats on the survival rate of cyclists in collisions with cars. Here it is:

http://www.transport.govt.nz/assets/New ... uly-07.pdf

A cyclist hit at 32 km/h has a 95% chance of surviving; at 48 km/h, 55%, and at 70 km/h, almost zero. This means the speed of the car at the time it struck the cyclist. The information is on the last page of the study.

Thanks for the info RI!

I've said it before, including to cop's face, and I'll say it again - I'd much prefer being a pedestrian hit by cyclist than a cyclist hit by a car. Some roads in Guelph have limit of 60, meaning everyone goes 70, so I think I'll pass on biking on the road there, unless it is near-empty...
