Do these figures shock you? If so tell us how you feel by responding to our poll.
Personalities such as Dan Walker and Jeremy Vine have had their fare share of accidents and near misses while cycling on the road. Would it have helped if they had gone through a driving licence test? Reports say Dan had been careless while riding his bike. He was also wearing dark clothing which made it difficult to see him on the road. Jeremy Vine has gone for the high-vis helmet and jacket since he heard about the Dan Walker accident.
