One of the interesting things is that the two pedestrian cases cited here were low and very low speed impact cases. One was on private property exiting a parking lot onto public property and technically not a road design issue. The other was a lady turning left, presumably from a stopped position, also arguably not a road design issue. I do not see these two cases as indicative of a wider problem other than the fact that cars were involved. Time of day, colour of clothing and driver attentiveness are probably way bigger factors than road design.

Most of the comments about poor road design etc. throughout this site are valid. But these are not the cases to make those points. The poor fellow on the Claremont is a victim of poor design/decision making as that roadway is in no way properly designed for biking. Whether or not it should be is a different question.
