Traffic Signal Guidelines for Bicycles

The Traffic Signal Guidelines for Bicycles report is intended to assist practitioners with planning, designing and implemention of traffic signals for bicycles in Canada. Bicycle signals are contrl devices used to separate conflicting movements and to facilitate motor vehicle and bicycle traffic flows. The signals may be installed at intersections where significant bicycle traffic volumes or conflicts exist. Conventional traffic control signals provide safe and convenient passage for cyclists through the vast majority of intersections. However, there are circumstances in which the addition of bicycle-specific traffic signal features can make cycling safer and more attractive. The objective of doing so is not necessarily to give cyclists priority over other roadway users but rather to permit the safe and efficient shared use of intersections and roadways by all users. (A)
