I'm glad that the city is taking this issue seriously. If injuries are because of road defects (either poor maintenance or poor design), the city should work hard to fix them.

i wonder what the rate for injuries are for all vehicular accidents. 1 out of 9 might seem high, but if there are 2-3 car accidents per day, i would think more money should also be put towards traffic safety in general.

Despite such questions, "even one injury is too many," Kasperzak said.
Really? Zero-defect mentalities cause more harm that good.
Some injuries are going to occur no matter how many new laws and bike paths you create.
The only way to garantee you don't get hurt riding a bike is not riding it. Even then the thing could fall over and hurt you. So don't buy one in the first place.
