Engineering: BIKESAFE

The Bicycle Countermeasure Selection System (BIKESAFE) is an expert system that allows the user to select appropriate countermeasures or treatments to address specific problems. BIKESAFE also includes a large number of case studies to illustrate treatments implemented in communities throughout the United States.

The system allows the user to refine his or her selection of treatments on the basis of site characteristics, such as geometric features and operating conditions, and the type of safety problem or desired behavioral change. The purpose of the system is to provide the most applicable information for identifying safety and mobility needs and improving conditions for bicyclists within the public right-of-way. BIKESAFE is intended primarily for engineers, planners, safety professionals, and decision-makers, but it may also be used by citizens for identifying problems and recommending solutions for their communities.
