Berlin reports rise in fatalities as new bike lanes fail to keep cyclists safe

Cyclists are dropping like flies,” Sørensen said. “We need to treat this problem with the same rigour as organised crime. The state needs to investigate the freight companies whose drivers cause these accidents
Articulated lorries were involved in six of the 14 accidents resulting in cycling fatalities in Berlin this year. In a further incident, which was not officially recorded as a traffic accident, a journalist, 35, waiting at a traffic light, was run over by a lorry when its driver lost control of the vehicle.

Does news coverage of traffic crashes affect perceived blame and preferred solutions? Evidence from an experiment

* Even subtle differences in editorial patterns significantly affected readers’ attribution of blame and choice of punishment
* Shifting from pedestrian-focused to driver-focused language reduced victim-blaming and increased perceived fault of the driver
* A thematic frame significantly increased support for infrastructure improvements

That bicycle helmets are not currently tested against such impacts will be a revelation to many cyclists and motorists, many of whom erroneously assume that bicycle helmets offer greater protection than they are actually designed to provide.
The helmet is a lie. It always has been.

Results show the majority of news reports were episodic rather than thematic, focusing on the traffic event and the parties involved in the crash, particularly the bicyclist. Vocabulary, grammatical structure, and narrative framing of news reports largely functioned to remove blame from the motorist and to highlight the bicyclist’s actions. These linguistic strategies reflect the assumption that responsibility for safety rests on the bicyclist and detracts attention from potential social policy reform that would lead to fewer bicyclist fatalities.
