Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to increase the understanding of user needs of truck drivers and cyclists regarding future warning systems designed to decrease incidents and collisions between them. Two focus groups were carried out and the inclusion criterion for truck drivers was to have much experience of driving in the city centre. Inclusion criteria for bicyclists were to ride their bike almost every day in city traffic and to either be experienced and aware of traffic rules (group 1) or around 15-16 years of age and not having started to take driving lessons (group 2). It can be concluded that both truck drivers and cyclists are frustrated about the current situation and the risks that they perceive have strong evidence in the literature. Possible ways to improve the situation are, in order of priority, improved visibility of cyclists, education of cyclists, more warnings on trucks and improved infrastructure.
