Pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers, and public transit users all desire similar roadway design features, at least according to findings from a recent intercept survey of 537 people along a major urban corridor in the San Francisco Bay Area. This research was sponsored by the California Department of Transportation to understand traveler preferences for street design that could increase perceived traffic safety, walkability, and bikability along urban arterials, as well as encourage economic… Expand

Accounting for drivers' bicycling frequency and familiarity with bicycle infrastructure treatments when evaluating safety.
TLDR
The results show that bicycling frequency significantly affects the proportion of drivers making eye glances at treatments, and that drivers more familiar with bike boxes stopped significantly further back from bike boxes, and driversMore familiar with merge lanes performed the merge maneuver significantly earlier.

Improving pedestrian safety at unsignalized crossings
TLDR
The research recommended selected engineering treatments to improve safety for pedestrians crossing high-volume and high-speed roadways at unsignalized locations, in particular those locations served by public transportation, and modifications to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) pedestrian traffic signal warrant.
