Project Description

The greatest barrier to a safe biking environment is the threat of collision with a motor vehicle. This research will focus on crashes between bicycles and motor vehicles and utilize econometric analysis to determine risk factors that contribute to the injury level experienced by the bicyclist. Environmental, vehicular, and driver characteristics will be considered to determine components that influence bicyclist injury severity.
