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...

PC-based hazard anticipation training for experienced cyclists: Design and evaluation

Publication/article
Published: 2020 : Kovácsová, N.; Vlakveld, W.P.; Winter, J.C.F. de; Hagenzieker, M.P.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Risks, Human behaviour in traffic, Education,
Research shows that the ability to anticipate safety-critical situations is predictive of safe performance in traffic. Thus far, hazard anticipation training has been developed mainly for car drivers...

A study in real traffic examining glance behaviour of teenage cyclists when listening to music: Results and ethical considerations

Publication/article
Published: 2018 : Stelling-Konczak, A.; Vlakveld, W.P.; Gent, P. van; Commandeur, J.J.F.; Wee, G.P. van; Hagenzieker, M.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Risks, Human behaviour in traffic,
Listening to music while cycling impairs cyclists’ auditory perception and may decrease their awareness of approaching vehicles. If the impaired auditory perception is not compensated by the cyclist...

The number of seriously injured cyclists is increasing in the Netherlands. The majority of these seriously injured cyclists were involved in single-bicycle or bicycle-bicycle crashes. Little is known...

Effect of physical effort on mental workload of cyclists in real traffic in relation to age and use of pedelecs

Publication/article
Published: 2017 : Boele-Vos, M.J.; Commandeur, J.J.F.; Twisk, D.A.M.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Risks, Human behaviour in traffic,
To improve cycling safety, insight is required into the factors that contribute to road safety of older cyclists. From the wide range of possible factors, this paper addresses the role of physical...
