Cycling Safety Roundtable
Roundtable participants shared experience on cycling safety questions and discussed the policy options for reducing traffic injuries whilst promoting active travel. In particular, four groups of questions were examined in greater detail:
- Can we measure cycle safety? Can we monitor safety over time in the context of growing use of bikes? Can we benchmark countries in a meaningful and comparable way?
- What is the road safety impact of e-bikes? Which policies have been developed or should be envisaged to make them safer?
- What is the road safety impact of public bike systems, either dock-based or dockless? Which policies will maximise the public health benefit of such systems?
- Can we recommend light segregation as a solution to the rapid development of a low-cost large-scale protected cycling infrastructure network?
