London,EN,UK -Road.cc, by Sarah Barth -July 5, 2014: -- Buses are just as dangerous for cyclists in London as lorries - but they do not kill as often... Lorries cause far more fatalities, but some years, buses are causing more major injuries to cyclists per kilometer cycled, according to figures released by the Mayor of London... TfL figures suggest that bus services run over half a billion kilometers per year, whilst HGVs cover over a billion kilometers per year... In 2009 lorries accounted for more KSIs than buses per kilometre, but in 2010, 2011 and 2012 buses were linked to more deaths and major injuries per kilometre... Green Party in London pushes for safer buses and examination of dangerous bus routes...
