Default Official pedal cyclist road deaths in 2016 ex DOT/NHTSA/FARS(Fatality Analysis Reporting System)

The      US national road safety facts for 2016 were published in May 2018 but I haven't seen them mentioned here yet. From the FARS (Fatality Analysis Reporting System):

Overview:
• In 2016, there were 840 pedalcyclists killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes in the United States, an increase from 829 in 2015. Pedalcyclist deaths accounted for 2.2 percent of all motor vehicle traffic fatalities (Table 1).
• The number of pedalcyclists killed in 2016 is 1.3 percent higher than the 829 pedalcyclists killed in 2015.

Key Findings:
• There were 840 pedal cyclist deaths in 2016, which accounted for 2.2 percent of all traffic fatali- ties during the year.
• Seventy-one percent of pedal cyclists who died in motor vehicle crashes in 2016 died in crashes in urban areas.
• From 2007 to 2016, the average age of pedal cyclists killed in motor vehicle crashes increased from 40 to 46.
• The pedal cyclist fatality rate per million people was 5.6 times higher for males than females in 2016.
• Alcohol involvement—either for the motor vehicle operator or for the pedalcyclist—was reported in 35 percent of all fatal pedal cyclist crashes in 2016.
• More than 26 percent of the pedal cyclists who died in 2016 had blood alcohol concentrations (BACs) of .01 g/dL or greater.

Here's a factoid that may inspire questions about candidates intentions to make riding a bike to school safer, in a half-term election in which half the candidates will rage against school shooters and the NRA:

"More students are killed riding their bikes than by school shooters."

I take that to indicate that a large number of bicyclists deaths are the homeless or nearly homeless, drunk or nearly so, and riding probably at night with no lights.

Executive summary


This is an extremely odd statistics and in effect is meaningless. Since 1980 there have been some 257 children killed in school shootings. But every year some 8 children 15 and under are killed on bicycles.

This means that from 1980 until now is 38 years and the numbers of children killed on bikes would be 32 years. Can we expect more or less school shootings and can we expect more children riding to school?

I don't know. Statistics cannot give us an answer to questions of individual psychology (school shooters).

Unless you cite a verifiable authority or analysis from linked studies, that's just straightforward slander. It's also a regular mantra from the nastiest of the local AHZ.

None of the shooters were riding bicycles at the time of the
shootings. Therefore, bicycle riding should be encouraged as a means
of deterring further student school shootings and for identifying the
rider as a non-shooter.

Well, maybe not:

I've linked news items about both cycling victims and perps
here before. AFAIK we haven't seen a bicycle suicide bomber yet.
