In 2020, the number of fatalities among cyclists amounted to 229. As was the case in 2019, almost one in three of them had been riding a pedelec at the time of the crash  . Since bicycle type is not known for all of the cyclists killed, this number should be considered a lower limit; possibly, more of the fatalities were pedelec riders . The share of pedelec fatalities is higher for older cyclist casualties and seems to grow as age increases .
The number of crashes with and casualties among speed pedelec riders is unknown, because crash database (BRON) does not distinguish between speed pedelecs and (light) mopeds.
