Is There Safety in Numbers for Cyclists and Pedestrians?
Is there safety in numbers? Attend this webinar to learn if
increasing the number of cyclists and pedestrians can lead to a better safety
regimen. Our presenters review the research related to safety analysis and the
relationship between volume of users and facilities, as well as the policy
implications for practitioners who seek to increase cycling and walking.
These points related
to the phenomenon of safety in numbers will be discussed in this session:
When do we observe "safety in numbers” and how
can we explain it?
What factors affect cyclist safety, and can we
build a framework to understand how these factors interact?
What approaches might a municipality take to
analyze and understand cyclist safety?
