Title: Essential evidence (No 170): Urban cycle use, Safety in Numbers, and speed limits
Date uploaded: 8th August 2018
Date published/launched: July 2018
• In the absence of cycle paths segregated from motorised traffic in urban areas the priority measure is to reduce the speed limit to 30km/h (20mph).
• In addition to built environment changes, including lower speed limits, Safety in Numbers also reduces injury risk as cycle use increases along a road link or at junctions.
Dr Davis publishes a series of single page ‘essential evidence’ summaries to help disseminate academic research to road safety practitioners.
