Prevention of turning accidents between vehicles and cyclists at urban intersections
Technical University Berlin.
2018 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This ongoing study with the topic prevention of turning accidents between vehicles and cyclists at urban intersections will be finished in April 2018. The study is based on two research projects concerning turning accidents, which were analyzed and published the last years.

While the accident rate in Germany decreased constantly over the last decades, a contrary trend is noticeable during the past few years. Among other things, the high ratio is explicable due to the increasing amount of cyclists. The increased accident rate at urban intersections, which involves cyclists, is related by turning mistakes of vehicle drivers. For example, in Berlin nearly 50% of all cyclist accidents with personal damage are turning accidents. Although law regulates the right of way – turning cars have to give way to straight-on driving cyclists – many accidents due to this mistake happen continuously.

Accidents happen even on well-planned intersections. German guidelines define preventive actious, complex implementation procedures and vaguely articulated measures minimize potential safety impacts. Bike-boxes or marked forward stop lines, bicycle lanes (on the road), local mirrors and receiving green traffic light earlier are some of these measures. However, most of the existing measures focus mainly on interactions where vehicles and cyclists had to stop at a red traffic light. By contrast, the most conflict happen if the vehicle driver and the cyclist pass through without stopping at a red traffic light
