FHWA Bicycle Road Safety Audit Guidelines and Prompt Lists
The Bicycle Road Safety Audit Guidelines and Prompt Lists document provides information on how to conduct a road safety audit to effectively assess the safety of cyclists. These Guidelines provide an overview of the Road Safety Audit process, as well as an overview of basic safety principles and potential hazards affecting cyclists. Prompt lists are provided to assist road safety audit team members in considering general issues when performing a bicycle safety road audit.
While this document is geared more towards engineers and planners, our Bikeability Assessment Guide for Communities and Bikeability Assessment Guide for Schools are valuable resources for bicyclists to perform their own community audits.
