Safety in numbers and cycle lanes – Professor John Parkin
What happens when traffic volumes increase? Do collisions go up at the same rate, or faster? In fact, they rise more slowly. What effect do cycle lanes have on driver behaviour? Would you be surprised to hear that drivers move closer to the cyclists? This presentation explains why.
