Study on the safety of the E-bike
On the 11th of July 2018 the discussion paper "E-Bike safety in The Netherlands" was published, which compares the likelihood and injury severity of crashes between users of e-bikes and classic bikes in The Netherlands.
On behalf of VeiligheidNL, Rijkswaterstaat for the Ministry I&W and the department Trafic Safety, writers Paul Schepers, Karin Klein Wolt and Elliot Fishman compared the injury consequences between e-bike and classic bike victims. A very interesting paper as the use of e-bikes is increasing in European countries, but the impact on road safety are yet to be examined. The full article can be read here.
