Niamh O'Reilly; Brian Caulfield; Mark MulvilleConference room

  • Study demonstrates how effective emergency response records (ERRs) can supplement cyclist collisions in official reports 
  • Majority (86.6%) of collisions attended by Emergency Ambulance Services (EAS) are Single Bicycle Collisions
  • As ERRs are georeferenced details about the road environment are established using the spatial tools available in a GIS
  • Almost half (46.6%) of injured cyclists attended by EAS are at midblock road locations
  • EAS’s attend more children aged under 12 and older persons aged over 65 with cyclist injuries than are reported to the police
