[QUOTE=TruF;5918254 I wonder if the chances of being killed while riding a bike on roads is any higher than being killed by another vehicle while driving or jogging. Thoughts?[/QUOTE]

Very disturbing cycle accidents are going up in CA but so is almost everything else. Last count; 38 million or so people reside here. Car accidents are a daily occurance in this CA town, but they used to be about 5 a year. Same thing rings true on a low recumbent trike as car driving for me- driving defensively; that and a little plain old dumb lusk has kept me on a trike 28+ years.
