It is very informative to put in the table the values for my bicycle, a Pashley Roadster Sovereign. The result for a 20 kg bicycle at 20 km/hr makes it quite clear why cyclists have already achieved Vision Zero.

The Dutch "Sustainable Safety" model does not rely upon speed limits, but upon engineering to provide safety. It is useful to see Mark Wagonbuur's recent video essay on Utrecht, a city about the same size as Hamilton. Please be sure to watch the video at the end. Not once are car speed limits mentioned. But look at the infrastructure!

Every piece of that infrastructure can be easily built in Hamilton. Utrecht did it. We can too!
