If we were serious for a moment, what would be your top ten things to keep cyclists safer ?
It's fairly well known that the number of cyclists itself seems to have the biggest effect - the more bikes, the safer it is for each individual rider. So anything that successfully promotes cycling.

Presumed liability in UK law.

This would not only help cycling, it would also preclude the need for special legislation covering cyclist/pedestrian accidents.

FWIW, I'm still noticing more wide and fewer close passes even now the traffic is back to ~90% of pre-covid levels, and I'm sure this is the main reason.
