Bicycle accidents carry a great risk of someone being critically injured or killed. According to a report from the CBC, around 70,000 injured cyclists are treated in Canadian hospital emergency rooms annually, 7,500 of them with critical injuries.
In the city of Toronto alone, hundreds of bicycle accidents are reported each year, as cyclists deal with high traffic volume and dangers unique to them. For instance, a report quoted in the Toronto Star says that streetcar tracks in Toronto may contribute to a third of all bicycle crashes in the city.
