After the intro, some pertinent links to AC discussions, but not all links. Please add your experiences.

Please report your bicycle-vehicle collisions to police, even if your injuries appear minor:

-- Your full injuries could be masked at the time by adrenalin, shock and pain (know from personal experience)

-- A delay in realising full injuries and reporting can lead to hassles in getting medical bills reimbursed (know from personal experience)

-- Let police officially warn the errant person and thus encourage him to improve his driving

-- Give authorities a better indication of cycling collisions, hazards and need for improvement

SA road trauma compensation laws were changed in Jul-2013.

DTEI / DPTI posts online yearly Road Safety Progress Reports, stating approximately __ cyclists killed, and __ cyclists injured.

Government data supports that cyclists are safer road users than drivers. In 2010 in SA 51% of drivers considered responsible, c.f. with 30% of cyclists. Be aware that a study using bike helmet cams indicates that authorities incorrectly blame cyclists.
