BICYCLE/MOTOR VEHICLE SHARE THE ROAD Used at roadway pinch points (no shoulder, narrow lanes, etc.) to warn you, as a motorist, to provide adequate space for bicyclists to share the roadway. PEDESTRIAN CROSSING Used at a marked crosswalk or in advance of locations where pedestrians may be crossing your path.

In the early s, California was implementing a policy of forcing cyclists off the roadways onto bikeways, using the excuse that this would make cycling much safer, but actually, as events proved, with the intent of making motoring more convenient, regardless of the danger to cyclists.

Cross, Gary Fisher. This section and Section V contain a description of selected findings from a recently completed study of bicycle/motor-vehicle accidents (Cross & Fisher, ).The findings of a traditional analysis of descriptive data are summarized in this section.

Section V contains a description of frequently occurring types of bicycle/motor-vehicle accidents-referred to as "problem types" -- and a. MOTOR VEHICLE/BICYCLE ACCIDENTS Overview. Our limited study of suction and air blast accidents leads us to believe that additional research should be conducted, and specific warnings should be issued to both bicyclists and motorists.

Professional truck drivers should be specially targeted to be informed of techniques for passing a bicycle.

Final report. (), by J. Allred (page images at HathiTrust). May 25,  · Drivers were found to be at fault in the majority of motor vehicle and cyclist accidents in QLD. Police found drivers to be at fault in 63 per cent of bicycle-motor vehicle crashes over a 13 year. During the s, Japan's Shimano Corporation invented a radically different alternative to round chainwheels.

The development of Shimano Biopace chainwheels began with a very sophisticated study of the biomechanical performance of bicyclists, and Shimano discovered two flaws that it.

In second study by Cross, he argues that, "although a reduction in overtaking accidents may not be sufficient justification for the widespread use of on-street bicycle lanes, it is possible that their cost could be justified when considering all the problem types that might be positively affected by such facilities.This study analyses factors associated with cyclist injury severity, focusing on vehicle type, route environment, and interactions between them.

Data analysed was collected by Spanish police during and includes records relating to 12, drivers and cyclist involving in collisions with at least one injured cyclist, of whom were injured cyclists.
