Abstract

The comparative risks per mile travelled in Great Britain are calculated for the driver of a four-wheeled vehicle, a motorcyclist, a pedal cyclist, and a railway passenger respectively over the years 1952-57. Taking the risk of death for the first form of travel as unity, those for motorcyclists and pedal cyclists were 23 and 5 respectively. The rate for rail travel, being based on fewer accidents, is subject to more chance variation, but there is no doubt that it is safer than other forms of land travel.
