cyclist deaths in particular remain stubbornly high, even as average
speeds, which affect road deaths, continue to decline. If cars are much
safer than 25 years ago, why are cyclist deaths increasing, from 25 the
previous year to 45 this past year?

Cars maybe safer for the occupants in a high speed crash but do they
reduce the number of low speed crashes? Very likely not because cars are
wider so reduce margins for error and all the stuff to protect the
occupants has got in the way of the driver's view. The width has also
taken away space for cyclists.
