The science of safe riding

Monday, September 24, 2018 by Katy McElroy

Last summer, 12 intersections in Central Austin got new bicycle signal faces: Third and Brazos streets, Third and Colorado streets, Third Street and Congress Avenue, Third and Guadalupe streets, Third and Lavaca streets, Fourth and Red River streets, 24th and Rio Grande streets, Airport and Wilshire boulevards, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Rio Grande Street, Morrow Street and North Lamar Boulevard, W. Cesar Chavez Street and B.R. Reynolds Drive, W. Cesar Chavez Street and Sandra Muraida Way. The Austin Transportation Department would now like cyclists to register their feedback on the signals through a short survey before Oct. 5. The survey data will be compared with data from a survey conducted before the signals were installed, as part of a study that is gauging how much public perception and knowledge regarding bicycle signals and safety has changed in the past year.
