‘Cycling safety in pandemic time’
The pandemic we are witnessing has clearly affected all aspects of our society, not the least when it comes to transportation. Many people turned to bicycles for commuting to avoid congested public transport. Many cities support this movement by improving bicycle infrastructure, taking space from cars to make bicycle lanes and so on.
What are the safety effects of this sudden process? Do more cyclists imply more cycling accidents? Or is there safety-in-number effect in place? Do cyclists behave differently, for example keeping ‘social distance’? Do car drivers behave differently seeing more cyclists around?
ICSC opens a possibility to submit additional contribution on the topic of cycling safety in pandemic time. If you have started (or plan to start) a study related to this, consider sharing your (early) results during the conference.
