***Visual Awareness of Cyclists***

Hello Biking World,

I am a high school student who is working on an engineering project to fix the problem of visual awareness and safety of bikers. I compiled a list of questions that are related to the issue in order to give me a statistical analysis of how to solve my problem. The link to the survey is below. Thank You.

Sincerely,

James

Step one should be to determine whether a problem exists and better define your terms. How many accidents occur where visibility was an issue? How does this number compare with the total number of cyclists, miles ridden, or time spend cycling? Are these accidents more prevalent under certain conditions, in certain locations, or during certain times of day?

From your questionnaire:

"Bicycle/motor vehicle accidents are occurring more and more in urbanized locations from the lack of visibility between both cyclists and drivers."

Can you cite a source for this assertion? How do you define urbanized?

"At what times do you feel unsafe (because of how visible you are) while riding? (check all that apply)"

What is the significance of "feeling" unsafe? Is this the same as being unsafe?

"Have you ever been hit or was close to being hit by a car before?"[sic]

Define "close."

I applaud your intent, but if you want your study to produce meaningful results, you need to work on the concept and execution quite a bit. Good luck.

Bicycle visibility? There isn't any. You are invisible. Ride that way.
