New Cycling Accidents campaign

"A new campaign is seeking to alert cyclists to the need to ride safely, pointing out that they are responsible for almost half of all road accidents involving bikes.

The Swiss accident insurer Suva and a number of Swiss cantonal police forces are behind the campaign, which launched on Thursday with a shocking video highlighting the dangers.

Every year 17,000 cycle accidents are reported to insurers, and last year cantonal police recorded 3,860 cases involving one or more cyclists, Suva and the police forces of Vaud, Fribourg, Basel City and Central Switzerland said in a media release.

These accidents resulted in 24 deaths and 854 serious injuries among cyclists in 2016."
