Accommodating cyclists at signalised intersections
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different.Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed.While researchers have previously examined the safety perceptions of cycling infrastructure on midblock road sections, little is known about the safety perceptions of cycling infrastructure at intersections.The aim of this study was to investigate which types of cycling infrastructure do cyclists perceive to be the safest at un-signalised intersections. Adult members of bicycle organisations (N=214) completed an online survey about their demographic characteristics, cycling habits, previous near-miss or collision experiences while cycling, and safety perceptions of cycling infrastructure at intersections.This Guide emphasizes the importance of a clear definition of the objectives of signal operation at a specific location.
Techniques included in the CCG allow Traffic Engineers to analyze various situations and intersection configurations.
But while developed in Canada, its methodology is applicable to conditions anywhere.
The survey procedures included in the CCG provide direction for users in any country to collect local data which can be used to obtain geographically specific results.
At signalised intersections different movements are separated in time and therefore the risk to compliant cyclists is generally lower than at unsignalised intersections.
However, if signal operation allows for filter turning, then cyclists are still exposed to risk from turning traffic that shares their approach leg and often also turning traffic from the opposing approach.
