Great post. I'm sure even when you lay out the facts though, that some folks will balk at believing them. The 'them' and 'us' ethos between cyclists and drivers is deeply in-grained...

I have one point of contention with the piece - speeding. I don't believe there is a lot of evidence to support the notion that speeding contributes significantly to accidents. Speeding in residential neighbourhoods is a no-no obviously, but on the highways? So long as you've had your brakes checked and don't drive too close to other cars I fail to see how driving 20-30k over the limit is going to do any harm.
