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...

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...

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.
Tags: Transport mode, Other modes of traffic, Human behaviour in traffic, International,
In the last few years, there has been a strong increase in the interest in and usage of socalled “Personal e-Transporters” (PeTs), also referred to as micro-mobility devices. Empirical research on...

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

Publication/article
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...

Investigation of accidents involving powered two wheelers and bicycles – A European in-depth study

Publication/article
Published: 2021 : Brown, L.; Morris, A.; Thomas, P.; Ekambaram, K.; Margaritis, D.; Davidse, R.; Shingo Usami, D.; Robibaro, M.; Persia, L.; Buttler, I.; Ziakopoulos, A.; Theofilatos, A.; Yannis, G.; Martin, A.; Wadji, F.
Tags: Transport mode, Powered two-wheeler, Risks, Human behaviour in traffic,
Introduction: The number of road fatalities have been falling throughout the European Union (EU) over the past 20 years and most Member States have achieved an overall reduction. Research has mainly...

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

Publication/article
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

Publication/article
Published: 2020 : Vlakveld, W.; Kint, S. van der; Hagenzieker, M.P.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Passenger car, Technology & ITS, Human behaviour in traffic,
What will cyclists do in future conflict situations with automated cars at intersections when the cyclist has the right of way? In order to explore this, short high-quality animation videos of...

The perception of bicycle crashes with and without motor vehicles: Which crash types do older and middle-aged cyclists fear most?

Publication/article
Published: 2020 : Schepers, P.; Geus, B. de; Cauwenberg, J. van; Ampe, T.; Engbers, C.
Tags: Transport mode, Bicycle, Human behaviour in traffic,
Several studies have focused on the perceived risk of bicycle crashes (irrespective of crash types) and concluded that cycling near high volumes of motor vehicles deters people from cycling. The...

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...
