How do cyclists communicate with car drivers?

Communication of bicyclists with car drivers and resulting consequences for  traffic-safety-behaviour 

Funded by: FWF, No. P 26192-G22

Project description: Bicyclists face a higher accident risk than other road users (ETSC 2012). The question therefore is how traffic safety for bicyclists can be enhanced? Communication is essential in traffic in order to inform other road users and to coordinate behaviour. The current proposal focuses on the analysis of how bicyclists communicate with car drivers in order to obtain a better understanding of the strategies that lie behind a certain communication behaviour.
