SAFETY ASPECTS OF URBAN CYCLE TRACKS
VEILIGHEIDSASPECTEN VAN STEDILIJKE FIETSBADEN
Results are discussed of an analysis of data on road sections within built-up areas in cities with more than 50,000 inhabitants. Road sections were divided into roads without bicycle facilities, road sections with bicycle lanes and roads with cycle tracks. Attention is mainly given in the report to the comparison of bicycle tracks with other bicycle provisions. Emphasis is placed on moped accidents so as to study the question whether moped riders should use bicycle lanes and bicycle tracks or not. Up to now in the Netherlands moped riders do often use such bicycle facilities. Cyclists are relatively less involved in accidents on cycle tracks. Moped riders are much more involved in accidents on cycle tracks. Most accidents occur at junctions. Collisions of pedestrians and cyclists with moped riders happen more on roads with bicycle tracks than on other roads.
