NHTSA Publications on Bicycle Safety
Summary: The US Dept. of Transportation (NHTSA) has these publications and more available free for downloading on line.
These materials are all on the NHTSA site unless they have changed all their links again. If so, start with their Home Page and search. You can also download them in .pdf format for printouts by clicking on the link "Printable version" on each page. Here we have links to the NHTSA server except for some .pdf files we do not find on their server. You can check the NHTSA page with this search for new ones that we don't know about yet.
Consejos y pasos para el uso debido del casco para montar bicicleta. (August 2006) The .pdf files are included on our Toolkit CD.
Los niños y su seguridad al montar en bicicleta. The .pdf file is on our Toolkit CD as spanishkids.pdf.
This fact sheet covers ped and bike crash factors, but blames the victims and scarcely mentions that poor street and facility design is the basic underlying cause responsible for most of the problems.
National Strategies for Advancing Bicycle Safety Report 2001
An attempt to formulate a national strategy for bike safety. It seemed like a good idea at the time as NHTSA and CDC formed a National Bicycle Safety Network to pursue it, but both agencies dropped the ball.
VideosNHTSA has done five .wmv videos that were once online on the DOT site. Send us an email with your postal mailing address if you need the DVD version. There is no charge for it, and we include some other videos as well.
This CD is for the bicycle safety professional and others who are proactive in developing programs at the state or community level, not for consumers. It is a compilation of existing and proposed countermeasures to solve a wide range of bicycle safety problems. We don't know if it is still available or not, but you could send a request for a copy of the interactive CD ROM with your contact information to: email@example.com
These publications are just a few of the ones on the NHTSA site. Please note that we do not have copies of any of them for distribution on paper, but can send the videos on DVD.
