Multi-lane roads more dangerous for cyclist crashes, study finds

Maybe another reason these 10 Denver intersections have the most bike-involved traffic accidents is because all of them had at least one street with four lanes.

Researcher Bob Schneider, focusing on severe bike and pedestrian crashes, found that four-lane roads in Wisconsin's major urban areas are "hot spots for fatalities."

Schneider says separated lanes, wide shoulders and improved bicyclist visibility at night could help reduce these severe accidents.
