Abstract:

The bike-auto accidents in Davis, California, a city with a long standing bike-lane system, were classified in 10 accident categories. The relative frequency of accidents in each category in Davis was compared to that in Santa Barbara, a comparable community without bike lanes. Within Davis, streets with bike lanes were compared to those without bike lanes using the same categories. Relative to three classes of accidents, rates were reduced by bike lanes in 6 accident classes and increased in 1 class. The frequency of accidents influenced by bike lanes was reduced by 53% overall, and the frequency of all accident types combined was reduced by 31% on bike lanes.
