Tablas de accidentes - Ciudad Ciclista
Esta recopilación de accidentes está en construcción continua. Toda nueva información es bienvenida.

Si tienes poca experiencia en wiki y te intimida tocar la tabla, puedes dejarnos la información que quieras en la bandeja de entrada y nosotros la clasificaremos.

Los accidentes están ordenados por orden cronológico inverso: los más recientes se añaden arriba en la tabla.

Los accidentes de "ciclista atropella a peatón" están resaltados en color salmón.

En la columna "Carril segregado":

SI significa que la víctima estaba circulando por un carril segregado o haciendo alguna maniobra influida por el carril bici (entrar, salir, cruzar la calle desde).
NO significa que el ciclista estaba bien circulando como un vehículo o bien circulando por la acera sin influencia de un carril bici. Cualquier anomalía (incumplimiento de las normas del tráfico, incluída la circulación por acera) en la conducta del ciclista que pudiese haber tenido influencia en el accidente se anota en la columna siguiente: "Conducta anómala".

Algunos accidentes que por la ambigüedad de la noticia o por otros motivos estuvieron clasificados inicialmente en la tabla pero fueron descartados por no ser urbanos, aquí

Between 2007 and 2010 the city of Seville spent €6.7m putting in 142km of segregated cycle lanes, mainly on sidewal…

There has been lots of talk about the good results of Seville’s Cycling Plan 2007-2010. Among the advantages commonly granted to the cycling promotion model use in Seville, these are the main three:

Increase in the number of bicycle users
Reduction in car usage
Reduction in bicycle accidents

The scope of Seville’s Cycling Plan was to build a 142 km long network of segregated bike lanes. Practically all of them were at sidewalk level, having two directions of traffic (bidirectional), 1,25 m wide per direction and using the same road intersections as pedestrians. The cost of building this network was 35 million Euro (250,000 Euro per km) (El País, 11 May 2014). Moreover, the total estimated four-year cost for the plan’s management was 6.7 million Euro divided into:

ten specific projects about traffic education, health, etc. (4.9 million, 73.2% of the budget)
infrastructure maintenance (662,000 Euro, 9.8%)
“Oficina de la Bicicleta” (Cycling Office) (234,000 Euro, 3.4%)
Civic commision (234,000 Eur, 3.4%)
Bike parkings (162,000 Eur, 2,4%)

One person, one click: is this how to save democracy? | Paolo Gerbaudo | World news | The Guardian
The pioneers of digital democracies were the pirate parties of northern Europe who first broke through in Sweden, Germany and Iceland about a decade ago, using an online decision-making platform called LiquidFeedback. One of its founders, Andreas Nitsche, said the idea was that “empowering the ordinary members would make these parties more responsive to the demands of society”.

More recently, the fiercely anti-establishment M5S and the Spanish leftwing populist party Podemos have led the way. “Ordinary citizens will become protagonists, abandoning the current system of delegate democracy in the hands of politicians,” said the late Gianroberto Casaleggio, who masterminded the M5S digital strategy. Given the discredited status of Italy’s political class, this narrative appealed to many citizens.

Sustainable cities: Madrid announces new rules of the road in bid to banish traffic from center | In English | EL PAÍS
Madrid City Council is set to approve a new Sustainable Mobility Ordinance that will change the way residents move around public spaces.

The new measures, which will take effect between five and 15 days after the council approves them on Friday, introduce a speed limit of 30km/h on all one-way streets and on single-lane two-way streets.

'For me, this is paradise': life in the Spanish city that banned cars | Cities | The Guardian
They stopped cars crossing the city and got rid of street parking, as people looking for a place to park is what causes the most congestion. They closed all surface car parks in the city centre and opened underground ones and others on the periphery, with 1,686 free places. They got rid of traffic lights in favour of roundabouts, extended the car-free zone from the old city to the 18th-century area, and used traffic calming in the outer zones to bring the speed limit down to 30km/h.

The benefits are numerous. On the same streets where 30 people died in traffic accidents from 1996 to 2006, only three died in the subsequent 10 years, and none since 2009. CO2 emissions are down 70%, nearly three-quarters of what were car journeys are now made on foot or by bicycle, and, while other towns in the region are shrinking, central Pontevedra has gained 12,000 new inhabitants.

No, the Catalan Parliament has been suspended because the Constitutional Court fears it may be about to vote in a way that the Spanish government does not like.

Note that it has not even done this yet. Nobody knows how its members will actually vote, until they vote. The Constitutional Court is suspending a democratically elected body in case it takes a democratic vote of its members.

Can Catalonia declare independence from Spain? | World news | The Guardian
It is pretty clear: “The constitution is based on the indissoluble unity of the Spanish nation, the common and indivisible homeland of all Spaniards; it recognises and guarantees the right to self-government of the nationalities and regions of which it is composed and the solidarity among them all.”

Catalan referendum: preliminary results show 90% in favour of independence | World news | The Guardian
Jordi Turull, the Catalan regional government spokesman, told reporters early on Monday morning that 90% of the 2.26 million Catalans who voted Sunday chose yes. He said nearly 8% of voters rejected independence and the rest of the ballots were blank or void. He said 15,000 votes were still being counted.The region has 5.3 million registered voters.

Turull said the number of ballots did not include those confiscated by Spanish police during violent raids which resulted in hundreds of people being injured.

‘We are with you Catalunya’ – the revolt in Spain is bigger than flags and language | Paul Mason | Opinion | The Guardian
Though brutal, the Guardia Civil actions on Sunday were calculated: in the selection of riot squads from outside areas, where casual hatred of Catalans is rife; in the targeting of old people and women; and in the pinpoint nature of the interventions, which people on the barricades thought were concentrated on middle-class areas.

There were thousands of riot cops on hand, on ships in the harbour. If Madrid had wanted to, it could have confiscated every ballot box within minutes and, for good measure, jammed the smartphone app the Catalan authorities were using to tally the results against the electoral roll. But prime minister Mariano Rajoy wanted to send a subtler message: let the most fervent separatists have their vote and get their heads broken, while scaring the rest of the population into non-participation, including any waverers.

Motor vehicles overtaking cyclists on two-lane rural roads: Analysis on speed and lateral clearance
Two-lane rural roads in Spain accommodate significant bicycle traffic volumes, mainly associated to sport and leisure activities. Motor vehicles’ higher speed, weight and volume, compared to cyclists, represent a serious safety concern when overtaking a bicycle. Spanish traffic rules determine a minimum 1.5 m lateral distance.

This research characterised 2928 overtaking manoeuvres in the overtaking lateral clearance between motor vehicle and bicycle, as well as in the motor vehicle speed, in contrast with previous research. Two instrumented bicycles were equipped with laser rangefinders, a GPS tracker and three video cameras. They rode along seven rural road segments at a speed between 15 and 25 km/h, centred on the paved shoulder, or as close as possible to the outer edge. Besides, this methodology allowed the characterisation of the overtaken vehicle type, its left lane occupation as well as its interaction with opposing traffic flow. For each session, rider’s general risk perception was also registered.

The analysis suggested that lateral clearance is not the only factor that influenced rider’s risk perception, although current standards are only related to it. On the contrary, a combined factor of lateral clearance, vehicle type and vehicle speed had a more significant correlation with the perceived risk. This agreed with literature models of transient aerodynamic forces between overtaking and overtaken vehicles. Results showed that effect of heavy vehicles on bicyclists was also strong. In addition to this, the combined factor of clearance and speed was higher on tangent sections where overtaking was permitted.

Forget Comcast. Here’s The DIY Approach to Internet Access.
You have the freedom to use the network for any purpose as long as you don’t harm the operation of the network itself, the rights of other users, or the principles of neutrality that allow contents and services to flow without deliberate interference.

You have the right to understand the network and its components, and to share knowledge of its mechanisms and principles.

You have the right to offer services and content to the network on your own terms.

You have the right to join the network, and the obligation to extend this set of rights to anyone according to these same terms.

Those terms, put into practice, have been astoundingly robust. They’ve been the basis for a community of varying constituencies, ranging from everyday people who just want communications to several dozen small Internet service providers (ISPs) that have set up shop on Guifi to provide installation, guidance and customer service for end users.

Moi, Claire, 18 ans, Perpignanaise indignée - Libération
le département des Pyrénées-Orientales a connu la guerre civile espagnole qui s’est soldée en 1939 par l’arrivée au pouvoir du chef militaire Fransisco Franco, provoquant ainsi l’exode en masse des Espagnols vers la France, ce qu’on appela rapidement la Retirada. Ces Catalans ainsi chassés de chez eux, affluèrent par milliers dans les camps de réfugiés de Cerdagne, du Tech, de Rivesaltes, et jusque sur la côte où ces derniers sont obligés de construire eux-mêmes leurs abris. Et les chiffres sont significatifs : pour 240 000 habitants au sein des Pyrénées-Orientales en 1939, ce sont près de 265 000 exilés qui demandent asile. Et l’obtiennent. Ils l’obtiennent car la France est une terre d’accueil...Alors que cette histoire est commune à tous les habitants de Perpignan et de ses alentours, alors que la population et l’histoire des Pyrénées-Orientales viennent de cet héritage glorieux et honorable, allez-vous vraiment donner votre si belle ville à un extrémisme aussi radical et si peu républicain ? Hier, à Perpignan, Louis Aliot est arrivé en tête du premier tour avec 34% des suffrages, suivi par Jean-Marc Pujol, maire UMP sortant qui a récolté 30% des voix alors que tous les partis de gauche réunis atteignent difficilement 24%. Plutôt qu’un «vote sanction de la gauche» dont parlent tous les médias, je vois dans ces résultats un réel manque de discernement.
