The right-of-way update to the story is new to me, at least since we all looked at it around here at the time. Having looked fairly deeply into the Toronto study, there certainly isn't any over-arching data that cyclists are "at fault". in a large number of accidents, and categories (such as "drive-out" or "motorist overtaking") seem to be the largest number of cases.

As for the Hamilton study, the fact that it mainly deals with kids very likely affects the numbers as far as individual responsibility goes. Also, drivers "not being at fault" (legally) does not necessarily mean that pedestrians are, or that ticketing them will accomplish anything.
