Street Intersection Characteristics and Their Impacts on Perceived Bicycling Safety

This research originates from concerns on transportation safety with a specific focus on bicycling, which is in alignment with the Ohio Department of Transportation's (ODOT's) third strategic focus area, Transportation Safety. The goal of this research is to identify the impacts of multiple intersection characteristics on people's perception of bicycling safety. The objective of this research is to develop a Perceived Bicycling Intersection Safety (PBIS) Model that will help decision makers make effective decisions to evaluate and increase bicycling safety perceptions at intersections. The documentation of the findings and the model will be applicable to ODOT and other state agencies, and the methodology will be transferable to other communities, locally and nationally, beyond the State of Ohio.
