This book is based on practical cycling experience I have obtained over the years cycling through busy urban streets including London, United Kingdom. My cycling experience sometimes takes me to cover up to fourteen miles to and from, navigating, maneuvering and following road regulations through traffic, poorly designed road signs and layouts, roundabouts, junctions, road intersections and many more. I am writing this book to share my experience, encounters and near misses with other road users like cars, Lorries, motorcyclists and some cyclists to international cycling enthusiasts out there so as to assist safety arrival of their respective destinations. Firstly, this book highlights on main causes of cyclist's accidents and deaths. Secondly, this book would teach you more about road safety and how to ride safely on roads. Thirdly, It would help you avoid collisions, injuries, accidents and untimely deaths. Also it has the potential to teach you how to repair and maintain your bike (DIY). Ultimately, safety and accident free cycling are the book's primary goals and assures.
Megan is a 13-year-old teenage girl, who realises that she has psychic powers that others do not have. At first, she tried to talk to her mother about them, but with disastrous consequences, so she learned to keep quiet about them. However, some people do offer to help and an animal showed a special friendship, but they were not 'alive' in the normal sense of the word. They had passed on. Megan has three such friends: Wacinhinsha, her Spirit Guide, who had been Sioux in his last life on Earth; her maternal grandfather, Gramps and a huge Siberian tiger called Grrr. Wacinhinsha is extremely knowledgeable in all things spiritual, psychic and paranormal; her grandfather is a novice 'dead person' and Grrr can only speak Tiger, as one might imagine and most of that, of course is unintelligible to humans. In this book Megan goes cycling with her best friend Jane during the school summer holidays and helps someone in trouble that they meet along the way. It leads to great benefits for the two girls.
The aim of this book is to present pedestrian injuries from a biomechanical perspective. We aim to give a detailed treatment of the physics of pedestrian impact, as well as a review of the accident databases and the relevant injury criteria used to assess pedestrian injuries. A further focus will be the effects on injury outcome of (1) pedestrian/vehicle position and velocity at impact and (2) the influence of vehicle design on injury outcome. Most of the content of this book has been published by these and other authors in various journals, but this book will provide a comprehensive treatment of the biomechanics of pedestrian impacts for the first time. It will therefore be of value to new and established researchers alike.
