A local project on passing distances between cars and bikes is starting up. The study will look at passing distances on roads with and without bike lanes in Baltimore, and the results will be used to inform future bike lane construction.
2-3 participants are needed who want to videotape their daily bike commutes and measure the vehicle passing distance of their own rides. Ideally, participants would bike commute at least 2x week, be comfortable on a computer (to analyze their video data), and be able to participate for at least a month. There is no payment for joining the project, and the findings are only going to be used to inform the city of Baltimore.
Please contact Dave Love (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or are interested in helping.
