shall propose the efficient approach to tackle the problem statement described
in this RNS. The proposers are expected to conduct the following tasks at the
of Literature and Practices:
the critical review of the existing literature and technical reports to
identify the proposed solutions for improving the bicycle crash reporting.
and identify the noteworthy practices implemented by the state police agencies.
Crash Data Collection. Collect the bicycle crash data by using the instrumented
bicycles and/or crash simulator. The performing agency can also construct the
mock-up sites for conducting the experiments to identify the sequence of events
leading to bicycle crashes. In this task the performing agency is expected to
identify the most influential crash contributing factors and sequence of events
leading to the bicycle crashes.
and Recommendations. Develop the guidelines and recommendations for the
agencies to incorporate the list of the noteworthy practices and identified
event sequence in the crash narration process.
the draft and final report that will document:
of the noteworthy practices implemented by the states.
of the real-life or simulated experiments describing the sequence of events
leading to the crashes, and list of the most influential contributing factors.
