Comparison of Real Accident and Near Miss Incident of Cyclist Collisions Based on Drive Recorder
Paper in proceedings, 2017

In order to examine factors that caused vehicle-cyclist collisions, vehicle-cyclist collisions at intersections that were recorded on a car driving recorder were compared to that of near-miss incidents. It was found that unless the cyclist took action to avoid the collision, collisions occur when the car needed a deceleration of 9.8m/s2 or more to avoid the collision. Two different types of collisions were observed: delays of drivers to start braking after a cyclist is present, and the sudden appearance of the cyclist. The percentage of incidents where the cyclist suddenly appeared was higher in collisions cases compared to near-miss incidents.
