It’s long been argued among cyclists and drivers that the other is the cause of more accidents, but is one group more to blame? The debate has moved up a gear recently with reports of annual road casualty statistics showing the gap between the two has narrowed to a tyre’s width when it comes to seriously injuring pedestrians. But who do you think is the worst offender? Is it cyclists flouting the laws that start a nasty chain of events? Or are drivers fueled with frustration to blame? Maybe you are a cyclist who is often cut up by a white van man, or a driver fed up of having to pull out to overtake a wavering pedal pusher?
