Study to highlight road safety for cyclists

Most road safety campaigns are geared towards motorists, but cyclists often find themselves overlooked by them, despite facing the same risks of being involved in serious accidents.

However, a new study by the University of Nottingham is set to shed some light on what dangers face cyclists on the road and what can be done to ensure that they can ride safely without being involved in a serious accident.

The study will be amply funded by the National Institute for Health Research under its Public Health Research Programme, while they will work alongside a number of cycle safety groups, including one at the Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. What the study will involve is looking in detail at the different cycling infrastructures of various nations including the UK, Australia and the United States. The researchers involved in the study will then determine what features work best and how they can be implemented effectively, which could ultimately reduce the amount of accidents on the road.

Like motorists, cyclists face a lot of danger when on the road. On roads that don’t have cycling lanes, it can be hard to avoid any collision with a reckless driver, and, even if wearing a helmet, the damage done to the bike and rider could be huge. As well as whiplash, cyclists could suffer broken limbs, shoulder pain and even internal bleeding in a particularly intense collision. This is why the study from the University of Nottingham is important, as anything that helps to reduce the number of accidents on the road for cyclists is worthwhile.
