5. Intersection Pilot Study
The secondary objective of this research effort was to apply the video methodology used for rating midblock roadway segments to intersections and assess whether such an approach was valid for rating the bicycle compatibility of intersections. The goal of this limited effort was not to completely develop a BCI model for intersections but rather to determine if the video technique showed promise for application to intersections. Thus, the scope of this pilot study for intersections was limited to one maneuver that bicyclists typically make at an intersection. The maneuver selected was a bicyclist traveling straight through an intersection in the presence of right-turning traffic (see figure 16).
