SaferWheels, European in-depth study

Within the European project SaferWheels SWOV carries out an in-depth study into crashes involving twowheelers. The study investigates crashes in which:

  • an e-bike, (light) moped, or motorcycle was involved
  • a cyclist collided with a motor vehicle (powered twowheeler, car, bus or truck)

The project SaferWheels is carried out by SWOV and teams from Great Britain, Italy, France, Greece and Poland. Each of the countries collects information about 85 crashes. The purpose is to learn more about how these crashes occur of these and which factors play a role. This information is used to propose measures to prevent similar crashes.
