If you were a real "investigative journalist" you'd tell us how squirrels get to places like Soho Square. Ideally with undercover footage.

Interested to see data on this from all sources, tho equally different threats from different classes of vehicle. For example I would like to know prevalence of speed limit breaches by cars in various settings.

If the probability of being caught for dangerous driving is low, the penalties are trivial, the cultural discourse is casually anti cyclist, and the road design aggressively pro car, then it seems to me that the roads will inevitably be dangerous.

I suggest you read the sentencing guidelines. The recommended penalties at each level are trivial.

I see this often. There's some great high theory novel methods stuff to be done, but data oriented academics in particular are prone to undervalue the meaty messy practical work, and also to underestimate its richness and complexity.
