Traffic conflicts involving speed-pedelecs (fast electric bicycles): A naturalistic riding study

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Vlakveld, W.; Mons, C.; Kamphuis, K.; Stelling, A.; Twisk, D.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Powered two-wheeler, Risks, Human behaviour in traffic,
Speed-pedelecs -fast electric bicycles offering pedal support up to a speed of 45 km/h- are a recent, environmentally friendly, and mobility efficient innovation. However, their high travel speed may...

LEVITATE: Road safety impacts of Connected and Automated Vehicles

Publication/article

Tags: Risks, Technology & ITS, International,
Connected and automated transport systems (CATS) are expected to be introduced in increasing numbers over the next decades. Moreover, they are expected to have considerable impacts on mobility,...

The safety of physically separated cycle tracks compared to marked cycle lanes and mixed traffic conditions in Amsterdam

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Petegem, J.H. van; Schepers, P.; Wijlhuizen, G.J.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Infrastructure,
Bicycle infrastructure is utilised to improve cycling safety and encourage bicycle use as a sustainable and healthy transport mode. This study sets out to assess whether providing physically...

Influencing factors of observed speed and rule compliance of speed-pedelec riders in high volume cycling areas: Implications for safety and legislation

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Stelling, A.; Vlakveld, W.; Twisk, D.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Powered two-wheeler, Human behaviour in traffic,
Speed pedelecs (s-pedelecs) are electric bicycles offering pedal assistance up to 45 km/h. S-pedelecs may contribute to a more efficient and green traffic system. However, their potential to reach...

Are there any significant differences in terms of age and sex in pedestrian and cyclist accidents?

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Leo, C.; Rizzi, M.C.; Bos, N.M.; Davidse, R.J.; Linder, A.; Tomasch, E.; Klug, C.
Tags: Transport mode, Pedestrian, Bicycle, Risks, Technology & ITS,
This study has analyzed sex-specific differences in pedestrian and cyclist accidents involving passenger cars. The most frequently injured body regions, types of injuries, which show sex-specific...

Driver state and mental workload

Publication/article
isbn: 9780081026717
Published: 2021 (Elsevier Ltd.): Waard, D. de; Nes, N. van
Tags: Technology & ITS, Human behaviour in traffic,
Mental workload plays a central role in driver behavior. Unlike physical workload, mental workload is difficult to quantify as it is the result of the interaction between the task to perform, that is...

Verkeer is ‘gedrag’, maar verkeersveiligheid is méér dan ‘gedrag’

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Knaap, P. van der
Tags: Human behaviour in traffic,
Waarschijnlijk de grootste dooddoener in discussies over verkeersveiligheid is dat ‘90 procent van alle verkeersongevallen wordt veroorzaakt door menselijk gedrag’. Waarna vaak de oproep volgt tot... Read more

Empirical findings on infrastructure efficiency at a bicycle T-junction

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Gavriilidou, A.; Daamen, W.; Yuan, Y.; Nes, N. van; Hoogendoorn, S.P.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Infrastructure,
In the pursuit of promoting cycling and providing better cycling infrastructure, its design is of great importance. One of the critical locations in a network are intersections, and specifically T-...

Adaptations in driver deceleration behaviour with automatic incident detection: A naturalistic driving study

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Varotto, S.F.; Jansen, R.; Bijleveld, F.; Nes, N. van
Tags: Infrastructure, Human behaviour in traffic,
Traffic congestion and crash rates can be reduced by introducing variable speed limits (VSLs) and automatic incident detection (AID) systems. Previous findings based on loop detector measurements...

Assessing the willingness to use Personal e-Transporters (PeTs): results from a cross-national survey in nine European cities

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : De Ceunynck, T.; Wijlhuizen, G.J.; Fyhri, A.; Gerike, R.; Köhler, D.; Ciccone, A.; Dijkstra, A.; Dupont, E.; Cools. M.
