Traffic and Transportation Safety Lab Seminar: "Crash risk of e-bike riders and riders of conventional bikes in Denmark" | June 22, 2020
Crash risk of e-bike riders and riders of conventional bikes in Denmark:In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the use of e-bikes in a number of countries. However, knowledge about the crash risk associated with riding an e-bike remains sparse and contradictory. The presentation includes a comparison of crash involvement of conventional bikes and e-bikes in Denmark, estimation of the overall risk of crash involvement of e-bike riders and conventional bike riders, as well as the risk of involvement in a fatal or serious injury crash for e-bike riders and conventional bike riders. The presentation regards the years 2015-2018 and is based on police registered crash data and exposure data from the Danish National Travel Survey.
