Bus Lane Bikers Crash More !

Did ya see what I did there ?.....................

A Transport for London Road Network study compared 28 trial sites with 28 other sites on parallel routes with no bus lanes, and found that collisions between bikers (not cyclists) and other vehicles were more likely in a bus lane. It seems as though motorcyclists are more likely to break the speed limit in bus lanes, and more likely to hit other vehicles turning in and out of side roads.
