    A spike in bike traffic has been accompanied by a rise in accidents involving cyclists, says Ottawa personal injury lawyerHoward Yegendorf.

    According to the CBC, the City of Ottawa reported about 300 cycling collisions a year between 2010 and 2014. On average, three accidents each year resulted in a fatality.

    More recent statistics are not yet available, but Yegendorf, founding partner of Howard Yegendorf & Associates LLP, says he wouldn’t be surprised if the number of accidents has gone up.

    “There seems to have been a significant increase in bicycle accidents. Ottawa has made several bike lanes, but there are a lot of people getting injured,” he tells AdvocateDaily.com.

    A CBC analysis of the 2010-2014 data found that in the overwhelming majority, cyclists were moving straight forward at the time of the accident, compared with about 30 per cent of vehicles. Another 30 per cent of collisions involved a car turning right, while in 20 per cent of cases, a car was turning left when the crash occurred.

    Of the cases that resulted in deaths, an estimated 60 per cent involved heavy trucks.

    One of Yegendorf’s clients, a man in his 80s, suffered serious injuries when he was hit by a garbage truck while riding his bike in a residential area. The accident resulted in his left leg being amputated just below the hip.

    “He’s very strong. He was living independently, gardening, and doing all kinds of chores for himself. But now it looks like this poor man is going to be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. It’s a sad situation,” Yegendorf says.

    Late last year, the opening of the city’s O’Connor Street bikeway generated controversy after three collisions were reported in its first three weeks of operation.

    The CBC reported that the design chosen for the cycle lanes was the third choice of consultants specializing in cycle lane integration, who deemed it “less safe” than its preferred layout. The company recommended protected bike lines on either side of the street, but the city eventually opted to construct a protected two-way lane for bikes on the east side of the street only.

    "Everything is trade-offs, even safety is a trade-off from time to time," Kornel Mucsi, a program manager at the City of Ottawa, told the CBC, noting that the consultant's preferred option would probably not have made it through the approvals process due to dissent from drivers because of the reduced space it would have meant for cars.

    "The public, motorists, cyclists all have input into our designs. And if the option that we select is not sellable — politically or publicly — then that option is not going to happen," Mucsi added.

    Thursday's fatal bike crash occurred just a few pedal strokes away from the Ottawa intersection where more cyclists are struck than any other.

    A westbound cyclist was killed on Laurier Avenue W. in a hit and run just east of Elgin Street yesterday morning.

    Several spots along Laurier, where separated lanes were installed in 2011 west of Elgin, actually have the highest collision numbers anywhere in the city.

    Laurier Avenue and Elgin Street had 12 reported cyclist collisions between 2013 and the end of 2017, according to numbers in the city's open data catalogue analyzed by CBC.

    Over those five years, there were 1,452 collisions involving cyclists across Ottawa. The most recent data the city has online is from 2017, with the numbers from 2018 expected later this year.

    The second highest collision spot is also on Laurier, between Metcalfe and Kent streets, with 10 reported collisions during that five-year period.

    The intersection of Laurier and Bank Street is fourth. Two other spots along Laurier are also in the top 20.


    More volume, more issues
    Shawn Gettler with advocacy group Bike Ottawa said the Laurier Avenue bike lanes have attracted a lot of cyclists, so they're more likely to run into conflict there.

    "We are approaching half a million rides through there every year now," he said. "So if most people are there, that's just going to be where most of the incidents occur."

    Gettler said the lanes themselves are largely safe, but the intersections could be improved. He said while his group will push for intersections that better separate cyclists from motorists, those won't be easy to implement.

    "Obviously, we'd welcome full protected intersections all the way across. But that's going to be something that we'll have to convince the city to pay for," he said.

    A review of the lanes from 2017 showed the collision rate along Laurier had dropped 30 per cent after the lanes were installed, while the number of trips had jumped 330 per cent.

    Gettler said the location of Thursday's collision — the bike lane there is not separated from traffic — is particularly dangerous.

    "What you have is like a floating bike lane that goes across a right turn lane. So you're going to have a lot of vehicle motion across there, and that's just introducing conflict," he said.

    'Just paint'
    Kitchissippi Coun. Jeff Leiper agrees there's a real problem in that spot.

    We have dozens of people who are being catastrophically hurt every year.- Coun. Jeff Leiper
    Leiper, who took part in an impromptu rally Thursday following the crash, said that on that stretch of Laurier there's "just paint" protecting bike riders.

    "You probably couldn't design a piece of cycling infrastructure better to put cyclists in danger," he said.

    Leiper said the overall data shows intersections aren't safe enough for cyclists, and as the city updates its transportation plan, there should be more money for cycling infrastructure.

    "We have dozens of people who are being catastrophically hurt every year," he said.

    "We need really strong language in that document [that says] we are going to spend more money on cycling to make it safer."

    本来是老城,街道本来已经狭窄。汽车多了,行人有最大路权,现在要加自行车道,还是双向的。

    村长,你有高招?
