BOSTON — Boston Mayor Thomas Menino wants to cut in half the number of bicyclists hurt in crashes by the year 2020.

Recommendations in the new Cyclist Safety Report (PDF) released by the City of Boston include adding helmet vending machines at Hubway stations, fining riders who don’t obey cycling laws, and increasing police enforcement of areas with high crash rates.
