Understanding micromobility safety behavior and standardizing safety metrics for transportation system integration

The purpose of this study is to accelerate shared learning around micromobility safety impacts and to fast-track improvements to injury surveillance of emerging modes such as e-scooters and related micromobility devices (e-bikes, electric skateboards, hoverboards, etc.) used on and around city streets, etc. The primary aim will be vehicles in shared mobility systems. Specific tasks will include: (1) Establish available data sources to support safety evaluations across multiple geographies. (2) Engage stakeholders, examine current practices, and identify approaches to enhance injury surveillance systems. (3) Development and deployment of a behavior-oriented survey instrument. (4) Formulate data structure for continuous tracking and analysis of micromobility sharing safety.
