Pedalcyclist fatalities increased by 89 (a 12.2-percent increase), and are at their highest level since 1995.
That's the highest of any group.
The total number of such fatalities was 818 (not 820 as estimated) which makes for a bad year count-wise. It's important to note that this is not a measure of all cyclist deaths, just those that include a motor vehicle and which are reported by the police to FARS. This under counts total fatalities by about 30% according to my estimate, meaning the real total is probably closer to 1170.
At the same time, the estimated number of cyclists injured oddly dropped by 10% from 50,000 to 45,000.
While fatalities have been increasing somewhat steadily for the last few years, so has the number of people biking and at a faster rate. Meaning that the ratio of fatalities to bike commuters has been dropping since 2005. But unless there is an unprecedented rise in bike commuters this year, it looks like the trend is going up. We'll know when the ACS data comes out.
