    Pedestrian, cyclist deaths on the rise

    New Zealand's roads have been a dangerous place for pedestrians and cyclists this year.


    Pedestrian and cyclist deaths have been a big contributor to this year's burgeoning road toll.

    To date, 318 people have been killed on New Zealand's roads, compared with 272 this time in 2016.

    Thirty-two pedestrians have died, compared with 24 in 2015 and 21 this time last year.

    Sixteen cyclists have died - three had been killed by this time in 2015 and four in 2016.

    July was the deadliest month this year, with 37 people dying on our roads. The second deadliest was January, when 32 people died.

    The 25-39 age group continues to be over-represented in the road toll numbers, contributing 84 of the 318 deaths.
