Automatic for the people - How prior encounters shape prospected interactions with automated shuttles

Published: 2021 : Tinga, A.M.; Zwart, R. de; Jansen, R.J.; Goede, M. de
Tags: Transport mode, Other modes of traffic, Technology & ITS,
The current study explored the effect of on-road experiences with an automated shuttle (AS) on vulnerable road users’ (VRUs) expectations about the AS’s actions. It was also explored whether...

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...

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

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...

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-...

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

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...
