Study confirms the vulnerability of cyclists and motorcyclists

A study involving the matching of hospital trauma data with police crash data for the years 2001-2003 has revealed that cyclists and motorcyclists occupied more bed days in the Canberra Hospital than the combined total of drivers and front passengers. The study was undertaken by Associate Professor Drew Richardson, Chair of Road Trauma and Emergency Medicine, ANU Medical School and funded by the NRMA ACT Road Safety Trust.
