Cyclists at higher risk when intersections aren't right angles
from Fox News
Bicycle riders are more likely to be seriously injured in vehicle crashes at intersections where streets don't meet at right angles, according to a study in New York City. Planners could factor in this added risk when designing bike lanes and other protections for cyclists, the study authors write in Injury Prevention. Bicycling offers great health benefits but issues of safety are a huge barrier to people choosing bikes as their transportation, lead author Morteza Asgarzadeh of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston told Reuters Health.
