Transportation officials hold webinar on 'near miss' bike incidents

Published June 16, 2017

NEW YORK CITY (BRAIN) — The National Association of City Transportation Officials will hold a free webinar Monday on how close calls and aggressive drivers affect bike use.

"Fear of being hit and seriously injured by a car is a major deterrent for people considering whether to bike on city streets," a NACTO press release said.

The webinar will feature a conversation with Dr. Rachel Aldred, founder of the UK's Near Miss Project. The session will look at Aldred's research and how it has been used to create cycling policy and design improvements in the UK.

"Dr. Aldred will touch on various approaches to near miss data collection, and how they can help cities provide a more comfortable biking experience, improve biking rates, and make streets safer for everyone," NACTO said.

The one-hour webinar is on Monday, June 19 at 1 p.m. ET.
