TitlePatterns of bicycle crashes in South Australia
AuthorsHutchinson TP, Kloeden CN, Long AD
Year2006
TypeReport
AbstractCharacteristics of pedal cycle crashes (as reported by the police) in South Australia, and how they have changed over the period 1981-2004, are examined. In 1981, pedal cyclist casualties were mostly children and teenagers. In 2004, pedal cyclist casualties were mostly spread across the age range from 16 to 49. Child pedal cyclist casualties reached a maximum in 1982-1987, and have fallen sharply since. Adult pedal cyclist casualties reached a maximum in 1987-1990, and then fell. The three main Sections of the report tabulate data for pedal cyclist casualties aged 5- 15 for the period 2001-2004, data for pedal cyclist casualties aged 16 years and over for 2001-2004, and trends over the period 1981-2004.
