BICYCLE TRANSPORTATION: INFERENCES FROM MASS ACCIDENT DATA

A PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION OF BICYCLE ACCIDENT DATA CONTAINED IN AUTOMOBILE MASS ACCIDENT DATA FILES SUGGESTED A DESCRIPTIVE MODEL OF BICYCLE USAGE IN ANN ARBOR AND OAKLAND COUNTY, MICHIGAN. THIS MODEL POSTULATED SUBSTANTIAL USE OF BICYCLES FOR COMMUTING IN ANN ARBOR BY UNIVERSITY STUDENTS AND OLDER BICYCLISTS, AS OPPOSED TO THE PRINCIPALLY RECREATIONAL USE OF BICYCLES BY YOUNG BICYCLISTS. THE ANALYSIS OF THIS MODEL DEMONSTRATES THE INFERENCES THAT CAN BE DRAWN FROM OBSCURE FACTS EMBEDDED IN MASS ACCIDENT DATA AND THE PROBLEMS THAT ARISE IN DETERMINING RELEVANT TESTING CRITERIA. /HSRI/
