The “Near Miss Project” and other cycling safety research from the UK & US
Across race and gender, feeling unsafe on the road is the biggest reason why people don’t bike. From crashes to the psychological impact of ‘near misses’, research backs that high-quality bike facilities is the key to enabling people to ride.
Co-hosted by Transportation Alternatives and the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO), this event explores how recent cycling research can inform how cities make streets safer for everyone on a bike.
