I missed this article when it came out, but as you may remember, Boris Johnson last year labelled bendy buses cyclist killers, saying they “wipe out cyclists, there are many cyclists killed every year”. But there aren’t.
The latest official figures, obtained by Val Shawcross, Labour’s transport spokesman on the Assembly, show there have in fact been no fatal incidents involving cyclists and the buses and only four serious incidents – where the cyclist may have required medical treatment – in the last four years.
