Default The vast majority of pedestrians who are killed or injured incollisions are hit by a motor vehicle, not a cycle

Policy Key Facts
The vast majority of pedestrians who are killed or injured in collisions
are hit by a motor vehicle, not a cycle. From 2007 to 2016 (GB), in any
location (i.e. in the road or on the footway, urban and rural):
Cycles were involved on average in about three pedestrian fatalities a
year, and 82 serious injuries. This represents c.0.6% of pedestrian
fatalities overall, and 1.5% of serious injuries.
Cars were involved on average in about 317 pedestrian fatalities a year,
and 4,394 serious injuries. This represents around 67.5% of pedestrian
fatalities, and over four fifths (81%) of pedestrian serious injuries.
Altogether, motor vehicles (i.e. cars, motorbikes, buses, vans, lorries
etc.) were involved in 99.4% of collisions in which a pedestrian died.
In 2016, 43 pedestrians died in collisions involving a vehicle on the
footway or verge. None of them involved a cycle.
From 2007-16, no pedestrians in Britain were killed by red light
jumping cyclists, while around five a year were killed by red light
jumping drivers.

Hardly surprising.
There are many more motor vehicles than bicycles.
Sadly.

Considering that cyclists are all law breakers (as we are repeatedly
told), one might be expected to believe it is not down to such simple
numbers.

Yes possibly.
Let's have some actual figures and research in order to prove something.
