Placing hourly variation in bicycle volume and crashes in the bigger perspective of road safety for cyclists in Dutch cities

Published: 2021 (Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport): Uijtdewilligen, T.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Infrastructure, International,
While bicycle levels in Dutch cities increased rapidly the last few years, it is still debatable what the effects of increasing bicycle volumes are on road safety. On the one hand, a safety-in-...

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

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...

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

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

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...

Empirical findings on infrastructure efficiency at a bicycle T-junction

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-...

Speed characteristics of speed pedelecs, pedelecs and conventional bicycles in naturalistic urban and rural traffic conditions

Published: 2021 : Twisk, D.; Stelling, A.; Gent, P. van; Groot, J. de; Vlakveld, W.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Human behaviour in traffic,
To assess the potential impact of the higher speeds of pedal-assisted bicycles on safety, this study compared conventional bicycles, pedelecs and speed pedelecs (hereafter called s-pedelecs) on mean...

Safety of e-bikes compared to conventional bicycles: What role does cyclists’ health condition play?

Published: 2020 : Schepers, P.; Klein Wolt, K.; Helbich, M.; Fishman, E.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Human behaviour in traffic,
Introduction The rising use of e-bikes (EBs) presents an opportunity to increase active transportation but may compromise road safety due to increased travel speed and weight compared to...

Cyclists’ intentions to yield for automated cars at intersections when they have right of way: Results of an experiment using high-quality video animations
