A. L. Bhaskaran-Kenny, B. A.P. Morris, and C. L. BrownConference room

  1. There is still a long way to go to change the behaviours and attitudes of vehicle drivers.
  2. This is especially for near misses that involve close passes, particularly on straight roads.
  3. Close passes account for 44% of all near-miss events in this study.
  4. Near-misses are not only a common occurrence for cyclists, but they are also preventable if other parties take different actions.
  5. Under-reporting of near-miss events also poses a significant problem.
