Crash Protection

There have been quite a few cyclists lately been run over and killed or seriously injured over the Christmas break. This was after the cyclists had gone to great length to make themselves visible and they were all experienced riders. Cyclists are vulnerable and it seems some drivers are not being careful enough.

How can we make bicycles safer? I don't think bikes are unsafe - it is more that other road users are careless and not considerate enough. Still it has made me think again about how to make Veloci-velo safer to use and I am exploring ways to make this velomobile a safe transport option. This could include crumple zones and / or airbags to help protect the rider.
