The rise in single vehicle cyclist fatalities in Australia. Is it a sign of an increase in popularity or in inadequate and poorly maintained cycling infrastructure?

S. Boufous, J. OlivierConference room

  • In Australia, Between 1991 and 2022, cycling deaths following multivehicle crashes decreased at a rate of 1.9% per annum while annual cyclist deaths from single vehicle crashes increased by 3.7%.
  • The increase in the number of single vehicle cyclist crashes coincides with an increase in the building of cycling infrastructure in Australia. 
  • This infrastructure is not always built according to the best international standards and not always properly maintained.
