The SPRC's study that concluded Hamilton has the second highest rate of pedestrian casualties in the province was conducted over 10 years. Is that not enough tracking over time to convince you we have a problem?

Overall road safety for all users in North America has indeed been declining for the last 50 years, mostly due to safety improvements in the design of automobiles. Citing that to refute local road safety data for the most vulnerable users makes about as much sense as declaring that the rise of a middle class in the BRIC countries means we don't have an affordable housing problem in Hamilton.
