Hunter UAP Professor William Milczarski along with Professor Peter Tuckel in the Department of Sociology at Hunter and Professor Richard Maisel in the Department of Sociology at New York University have an article published in the December 2014 issue of the Journal of Safety Research. Entitled “Pedestrian Injuries Due to Collisions with Bicycles in New York and California,” it examines the incidence of pedestrians injured by cyclists in New York between 2004 to 2011 and in California from 2005 to 2011. They found the rate of pedestrians injured in collisions with cyclists has decreased over time. You can read the full article here and find out why that is the case.
The research was featured on The Atlantic Citylab, which you can check out here. Professors Milczarski and Tuckel were interviewed on The Brian Lehrer Show on CUNY-TV about the research. To view the entire show, click here, and their segment starts around the 16:30 mark.
