Workshop: Cycle helmet safety: Global harmonization of consumer information rating schemes

The program for the helmet workshop will provide an opportunity to present the latest outcomes of research, discuss current best practices for testing and assessing cycle helmet safety performance and provide a forum for debating the global harmonization of the various approaches currently being adopted. Finally, the workshop will aim to create a roadmap for achieving a global cycle helmet safety performance consumer information scheme.

Workshop: Reconstruction of Vehicle Collisions With Bicyclists

The objective of the program for the bicycle crash reconstruction workshop is to provide an overview of the different techniques used in crash reconstructions pointing out the benefits and limitations of each and to present and contrast approaches used in Europe and North America.

Keynote 1: Complete Streets, Complete Communities

Over the last decade, more and more people in the United States are walking and biking as a form of transportation and recreation. However, people living in the United States still face major safety challenges when walking or biking. Nationally from 2006 through 2015, 46,659 people were killed while walking and 7,154 people were killed while biking, together representing 15.1 percent of total traffic deaths over that decade. These numbers have been increasing. In 2013, 5,528 people walking or biking died in traffic crashes. In 2014 that number increased to 5,639 and in 2015 it increased to 6,194 deaths. In addition, research has also demonstrated that people of color and older adults are overrepresented among pedestrian deaths. A Complete Streets approach integrates people and place in the planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of our transportation networks. This helps to ensure streets are safe for people of all ages, races, incomes, and abilities, balance the needs of different modes, and support local land uses, economies, cultures, and natural environments. Since the Complete Streets movement began in 2004, over 1,300 communities in the United States have adopted Complete Streets.

Keynote 2: Challenging the Asserted Unsafety of Separated Bicycle Paths and Planning Low-Traffic-Stress Bicycling Networks

Until about 2011, American bikeway planning held to the doctrine that separated bicycle paths – bicycle paths along roads that are physically separated from vehicular traffic – are inherently dangerous and should be avoided. Flaws in the limited body of research used to support this doctrine are exposed and contrasted with research and science in support of physical separation from fast and heavy vehicular traffic. The legacy of past American practice is that many so-called bicycling facilities involve high traffic stress, and that in many cities, the collection of low-stress bike routes does not form a coherent network, meaning there is no low-stress connection between most origin-destination pairs. Methods for defining and evaluating low-stress connectivity are described and illustrated using the experience of selected American cities in planning for connected low-stress bike networks.

Keynote 3: Street Design Guides: The Intersection of Practice, Research, Culture and Advocacy

Street design guides play a central role in the evolution of transportation systems in society. They are instruction manuals for engineers and planners to build new streets and repair or replace older streets. In theory street design guidance is based solely upon sound engineering judgment backed up by evidence based research to ensure streets ensure the health, welfare, and safety of the public. In practice street design guides are a reflection of a society’s culture and values. As they are developed, they are subject to the influence of advocacy and the personal biases and opinions of the people participating in the process. To reduce car dependency and achieve Vision Zero goals, it is necessary to understand how historical cultural values impact present day design guidelines. This discussion will point out the legacy values that are ingrained in guidance, discuss key research that impacted guidance, and highlight critical areas that require research attention.
