Making Streets Safe for Cycling, 1999

Making Streets Safe for CyclingThis study is based on research and analysis of prototype and existing on-street cycling facilities designed to minimize confl icts between cyclists and other roadway users.

The final report recommends innovative on-street cycling design prototypes for evaluative testing, based on a study area defi ned as Manhattan and the major bridges that provide bicycle access to Manhattan from other boroughs. At the same time, the study evaluates the effectiveness of New York Police Department (NYPD) bike patrols in reducing conflicts between cyclists and other mode users (pedestrians and cars).

Detailed on-street facility recommendations are accompanied by broader recommendations to improve enforcement and create public awareness of on-street cycling facilities.

Making Streets Safe for Cycling is available as one complete document (PDF Document 8.7 MB) or by chapters in PDF format:
