Cycling will never really be safe

Re: Biking myths that simply refuse to die, June 28.

David Reevely cites some chilling accident statistics, but fails to reach some obvious conclusions.

Despite years of trying to make both our roads and cars safer, we continue to have accidents. Thanks to human error, I doubt we will ever eliminate vehicle collisions. We have turn signals and daytime running lights and a myriad of safety features and yet we continue to drive into each other. Why, then, do we ever think that we will succeed at making the roads safe for cyclists?
