"Why you're safer on a bike share than a regular bike": Incredible news from Vox

Here is more news from Vox done in an entertaining fashion:
"Here's a remarkable fact: Not a single person has died using bike share in the United States. [emphasis added]
     Bike sharing has seen explosive growth since 2007, with systems in at least 94 cities and more than 35 million trips taken. There have been some serious injuries, yes. But — knock on wood — we've seen zero US deaths from bike sharing so far. Contrast this with the overall estimated cycling fatality rate of 21 deaths per 100 million trips."
