A recent incident in Philadelphia left a 34-year-old bicycle courier dead after he was hit by an SUV in one of the city’s busier sections. After friends and neighbors held a memorial ride in honor of the fallen cyclist, many in the city are wondering what needs to be done to reduce the number of cyclists injured or killed on their streets.
Sadly, close to 45,000 cyclists are injured every year—with 5,400 of those injured being children. Many of these unfortunate accidents are fatal—with 800 lives lost each year. With this in mind, Philadelphia has become one of many cities that has joined the Vision Zero campaign—a three-year plan which aims to eliminate all pedestrian, bicyclist, and traffic fatalities in major cities.
