SAFETY IMPLICATIONS OF BICYCLE PATHS AT SIGNALIZED INTERSECTIONS

This paper presents a quantitative meta-analysis of studies evaluating, by means of the Bayesian method, the safety effectiveness of different bicycle facilities at road junctions. This is preceded by a discussion of background theories and an up-to-date presentation of today's knowledge of the cyclist's safety at intersections; alternative layouts in Scandinavia, and Sweden in particular, are shown. The project consists of a literature survey as well as interviews with experts and cyclists, and an attempt to weave together these different sources in estimating the effect of a particular layout. Combined results, with the Bayesian technique, are presented for only one layout comparison: accident risks for cyclists at signalized intersections with an without a bicycle path.
