Some people have made the argument that bikes are lighter and more agile than cars -- more maneuverable, and able to avoid collisions by virtue of superior maneuverability.
This seems like a real mistake to me.
It may be true under certain conditions; but there are many other conditions in which it is not true at all.
There is a fallacy in their reasoning -- this fallacy appears often, in various guises. It is the fallacy of selective scenarios.
If certain scenarios are pictured or taken into consideration, then bikes look like the clear winners.
However, other scenarios are conveniently ignored or left out of the picture.
