Gee. Did a search and couldn't find one mention of the word "seat belt".

My inner skeptic asks how much of the increased bike accidents are due to increased reporting of accidents compared. CaBi is going to be a very good monitor of accidents, since you are renting their bikes.

Since DC is a contributory negligence jurisdiction, as a matter of law in order for one party to be at fault the other party has to be completely without blame. So it's completely believable that in the majority of crashes nobody is at fault.

I agree that the wording in the article is problematic though. The study didn't show that nobody is at fault in most crashes, but that nobody is cited.
