Bicycling Can Be Deadlier in L.A. Than in Mumbai, Shanghai and Other Heavy-Traffic Cities (VIDEO)

At first, riding a bicycle through Mumbai seemed like a death wish. I saw lines of cars, scooters, rickshaws, horses, oxen, and even human-pulled carts lurch into intersections before the light turned green. I hesitated at the crosswalk, holding up traffic and setting off honking from behind. I was petrified…


Los Angeles, on the surface, seems like the perfect place to get out and ride a bike.  The weather is temperate and the streets seem to be wide enough in most places and more bicycle lanes and other bike-friendly features are popping up.  This study by LA Weekly shows, though, that L.A. can be deadly for cyclists.  The death count for the year so far stands at 39!
