I saw this mentioned on an Australian cycling website. It just shows it's not just UK cyclists who are subject to some bad driving.

I've got a mate who moved to Perth two years ago, says UK drivers are saints compared to what he puts up with there.!

I lived in Sydney for 14 years. London is an absolute cycling paradise by comparison.

After his round-the-world trip Mike Hall said the worst place he'd ridden was east coast Australia.

For examples of the mentality, see any story on cycling on the Australian Daily Telegraph website.

London Population 8.2m, 14 deaths in 2013
Australia pop. 23.3m 43 deaths according to the video.
I am pretty sure if you had the full UK rates it would make Australia's death rate look even worse. What a shame. Perhaps this is one thing that can be said for our small windy city streets.
