"The sound of braying donkeys filled the dusty air at Bateshwar equine fair in northern India, and the owners of almost 3,500 animals were starting to panic. The situation was escalating towards crisis point due to a severe lack of water. The fair organisers had not managed to install a hand pump in the dry and hilly terrain where thousands of people had gathered to buy and sell thousands of donkeys, mules and horses.

Interesting ..
 
Interesting data here. TL:Dr: death for cyclists in the US is 21 per 100M trips. We have 35M bike share trips so far and no deaths. Research tries to show why.

It's no coincidence that bike-share riders get in far fewer crashes.
