Is There Safety in Numbers for Cyclists and Pedestrians?
(75 minutes)

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?
