Cyclists’ collisions update
The website www.crashmap.co.uk is always a useful source of good but unwelcome information.
The latest 2020 injuries are now shown, with Vastern Road Roundabout still taking top spot, albeit with only two injured cyclists, one serious, the other slight.
Still two too many.
The only death was the unfortunate accident in Addington Road.
Other injuries were spread around Reading with Kings Road and Oxford Road again featuring.
Collisions and injuries appear to be less than in previous years, but that was probably a benefit from Covid restrictions.
Now, as we are aware, traffic and drivers’ poor driving seem to be returning to the ‘bad old days’.
Check your routes to see the problem areas, which are not always where you expect.
