RÉSUMÉ: Le cyclisme est généralement considéré comme le mode de transport le plus dangereux, car les collisions avec des véhicules sont plus susceptibles de provoquer des blessures graves et même la mort que les autres usagers de la route à l’exception des piétons. Compte tenu de ses nombreux avantages environnementaux et sociaux, les villes encouragent le cyclisme en tant que mode de transport abordable et développent leur infrastructure cyclable.----------ABSTRACT: Cycling is widely considered to be the riskiest mode of transport since collisions with vehicles are more likely to result in serious injuries or even death than other road users except pedestrians. Given its many environmental and social benefits, cities are encouraging cycling as an affordable mode of transport and are expanding their cycling infrastructure. While cities are aiming to increase cycling mode share, their alarming safety statistics have compelled transportation researchers and planners as well as city officials and decision makers to invest resources in designing, implementing and improving the cycling network to safely accommodate cyclists.
