“Stop SMIDSY” – crowdsourcing our way to safer streets for cyclists

A bunch of us at the Innovation Unit cycle all or part of the way to work, so we have a personal stake in making sure drivers are aware that they share the road with cyclists. So we’re pleased to read in Debra Rolfe’s  Guardian Cycle Blog piece  about  Stop-SMIDSY.org.uk – a crowd-sourced database of cycle crashes and near misses (SMIDSY stands for ‘Sorry Mate, I didn’t see you’).
