One common crash involving motorists and bicyclists occurs when a driver passes a bicyclist too closely, either striking the bicyclist from behind or causing the bicyclist to lose control or balance. Panelists shared what we know about this crash problem in terms of its prevalence and contributing factors. Solutions and strategies to prevent the problem, ranging from roadway design and policy solutions to behavioral interventions, were discussed. Presenters included Libby Thomas (UNC Highway Safety Research Center), Ken McLeod (League of American Bicyclists), and Bill Schultheiss (Toole Design Group).
