I feel that this "scarcity" is strictly an artifact of the manner in which collisions are reported, and the manner in which this thread has supposedly collected them.Originally Posted by Helmet Head
As noted in the other threads, media do mention when a bike lane or shoulder incident was involved. But I have never, seen an accident report in the media here that provided any detailed information such as a cyclist's position within a lane. However you make this a criteria for reports to be accepted. Hence, the reports I have provided are basically discarded.
Because cyclists are rare here, evidence of bicycle accidents is rare as well But if your theory is correct, motorists would drift into cars parked in the curb lane fairly often and not have violent rear-end collisions very often. However I have never personally seen the former collision type, but hundreds of the latter.
