We found the pedestrian casualty figures quoted by David Cooper (NCE 8 June) very interesting.
Can he assure us that he deducted the mileage driven on motorways (where there are no pedestrians)? Also, did he include the 20,000 premature deaths per year caused by motor vehicle pollution?
Here is something else to consider. Trip distance is not equal to trip importance.
Cyclists (and pedestrians) often achieve the same purpose for their journey as drivers do with longer ones.
