TitleLimitations of Using Police Crash Data to Identify the Benefits of Innovative Cycling Infrastructure
AuthorsStokes CS, Woolley JE
Year2017
TypeConference Paper
AbstractInnovative bicycle infrastructure treatments are gaining popularity in Australia. There is a need to identify treatments that can be beneficial for treating frequent bicycle crashes. The presented methodology is used to match treatments with frequent crash types identified through the use of police crash data. Results suggest that police crash data, analysed at an aggregated level, show promise for relating the benefits of treatments to frequent crash types through identification of crash mechanisms. Gaps within the data were identified that prevent this method from being used to fully

appreciate the benefits of some treatments, particularly those used at intersections.
