BICYCLE RIDERS BLAME CAR DRIVERS for the majority of pushbike crashes.
Motorcycle & scooter riders also blame car drivers for the majority of casualty crashes. The science supports both motorcyclists and bicyclists claims about the cause of most road crashes being due to car driver error.
The difference between pushbike and motorbike riders safety claims is close to nil in on-road situations. But when Victorian motorcycle or scooter riders complain about car driver negligence or aggression we get VicPol telling the media that riders are to blame for 86% of bike crashes and the TAC putting about that motorbike riders are 34 or 36 or 41% more likely to get hurt on their bikes than drivers are in their cars.
