The common strategy for safe bicycle and moped traffic 2018
Responsible organisation
2019 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The bicycle traffic is an essential part of a sustainable transport system, and cycling makes a vital contribution to an increase in public health. Increased cycling also contributes to reducing the impact on the environment and climate. However, bicycle traffic must be safe for it to be considered long-term sustainable. Today, cyclists make up almost half of the total number of seriously injured in the road traffic in Sweden. With that starting point, the work for Vision Zero becomes (the vision that no one is to be killed or seriously injured in the road traffic) a key challenge in work for increased cycling. Currently, we see a substantial electric-bicycle development and sales are heading to similar levels, as in many other countries in Europe. Bicycles and class II moped share the same infrastructure at the present day. Therefore, measures for safer cycling usually also have a positive effect on the safety of class II moped riders. This developed strategy for safe bicycle and moped traffic is the result of the collaboration between different authorities and actors. The purpose of the partnership is to, in a way, systematically try to understand and handle the challenge of increasing safety for both cyclists and moped riders. Several of the issues addressed in the strategy is complex. It is, therefore, essential with further analyses to continuously develop knowledge in the field. The developed strategy provides a basis for proceeding planning within government authorities, municipalities and other actors. The hope is that the prevailing strategy will serve as a source of knowledge and inspiration for those actors who want to contribute to safe bicycle and moped traffic.
