The following images are a series of crosswalk scenarios. The orange arrows show where the cars are going. The black arrows show where the bicyclist needs to look for a potential conflict. (All the drivers are not necessarily there at the same time.)
What direction is the driver of each (1-4 when crossing the side street, or 1-6 when crossing the 4-lane) of those cars looking?
Where is that driver’s primary attention — what’s he focusing on?
What elements, fixed or moving, might obscure a driver’s view of the bicyclist (and vice versa)?
Comments encouraged 🙂
