Plan ROAD SAFETY - Intersections

Regarding Road Safety you need to count the dangerous intersections.

To assess dangerous intersections we agreed to use the Eurovelo criteria which are

-  intersection with limited visibility

- going left (in right-hand traffic) turn with no hook turn possible

- roundabouts with multiple lanes

- traffic lights with significant conflicts

- long crossings (>10m)  without traffic island or lights

- HGV turning right (heavy vehicles) across cycle lane.

Some innovations can improve dangerous intersections. In the picture you see BikeScout from Heijmans where a sensor detects the approaching bike which causes LEDs in the car road to light up and blink.
