An Examination of the Impact of Increasing Commercial Parking Utilization on Cyclist Safety in Urban Environments

The overarching goal of this project is to improve both cyclist safety and commercial parking utilization in urban environments. To support this goal, this project will test the impacts of different striping, signage, and infrastructure on cyclist behavior around commercial vehicle (truck) loading zones and will determine the implications for cyclist safety.
