  1. A comparison of traffic safety of bicycle streets and other bicycle facilities using crash cost rate is made.
  2. Tobit regression models show that the crash cost rates on bicycle streets are highest.
  3. The conducted conflict study gives more insight into how and why unsafe events on bicycle streets occur.
  4. Conflict frequencies are highest on bicycle streets with high bicycle volumes and very low motor vehicle volumes.
  5. Bicycle pairs and motor vehicles are nine times more likely to be involved in a conflict on bicycle streets than single cyclists.
