The Behaviour Of Teenage Cyclists At T-Junctions

18 April 1990

An examination of national accident statistics shows that casualties to child cyclists have recently increased. Additionally, research has shown that the reporting of such accidents takes place, perhaps, in only one case in three.

Within the casualties reported a large proportion take place at T-junctions and a majority occur to older children with a peak in the early teens.

This behavioural study has concentrated therefore on teenage cyclists negotiating T-junctions.
