Does Copenhagen have a higher per capita bicycle injury rate since there are so many bikers on the streets?

    One of the great benefits of having a “bike friendly” city like Copenhagen is that the rate of bicyclist deaths goes down even though the number of bicyclists is higher. This is because the rules of the road and behavior of drivers protect bicyclists from the threats that cities normally pose. Last year only 5 cyclists were killed on Copenhagen’s roads, which is half the number that were killed there ten years ago when there were less bicyclists on the road. The bicycle “superhighways” described in the article are designed to provide bicyclists a system and a set of tools that will protect them from aspects of the city that would normally be threatening to their safety.
