Towards an understanding of the factors associated with severe injuries to cyclists in crashes with motor vehicles

This thesis aimed to develop statistical models to overcome limitations in police-reported data to better understand the factors contributing to severe injuries in bicycle motor-vehicle crashes. In low-cycling countries such as Australia, collisions with motor vehicles are the major causes of severe injuries to cyclists and fear of collisions prevents many people from taking up cycling. The empirical results obtained from the models provide valuable insights to assist transport and enforcement agencies to improve cyclist safety.
