Cyclist deaths last 12 months

The latest report on road deaths in Australia

shows 28 males and 5 females killed in the last 12 months, up 6.5% on the previous year, but with a declining trend over the last five years (average decline is 5% pa). I wonder if this the first slight sign confirming the theory that more people cycling makes cycling safer.

Overall WA is enjoying a decline in fatal crashes over the last year.
