Inetersting, thanks for posting. For me the takeaway is this:
CTC has pointed out that safety must be improved, but the focus must be on interventions that also increase cycling levels, not measures that restrict, or put the responsibility solely on cyclists. To achieve safety in numbers you need to overcome the barriers to cycling – chiefly the fear of injury – and tackle the sources of danger. Broadly speaking, this requires reduced speeds and better quality cycling infrastructure, together with improved road user behaviour.
Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . .
