Boston has had a tough time maintaining its cyclist capital image with the lack of safety resulting in five deaths in this past year. Because of this Boston has begun taking steps to ensure the safety of future bicyclists who wish to share the streets with drivers.

It was a difficult time to be a cyclist in the city and feel safe while on the road everyday in 2012.


By December, Boston had mourned five people killed in bike-related accidents that involved cars and other vehicles.


The fatal crashes were enough to get officials from departments and organizations all over Boston to come together and discuss ways to ensure rider safety for those traveling on two wheels.


In 2013, leaders have promised to continue to ramp up safety efforts to improve city streets and make Boston a top city for cyclists.
