Safety of urban cycling: A study on perceived and actual dangers

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch oder TagungsbandBeitrag in Tagungsband mit PosterpräsentationBegutachtung


This work combines data from studies on threat perception by cyclists with data of actual traffic accidents involving cyclists: it presents survey results on perceived dangers of urban cycling based on interviews with cyclists and polls conducted in the city of Vienna (Austria) over the last two years. These results are contrasted with an analysis and evaluation of records of injury accidents over the last 10 years. While the number of bicycle accidents per year has remained stable, the data shows increases of up to 225% for certain accident characteristics. Additionally, the study also reveals potential extensions to the accident database which would enable more detailed analyses of certain aspects such as differences in cyclist safety on different types of bicycle routes.
