Surveys: Are Cargo Bikes Safe and What are the Characteristics of Safe Cargo Bikes?
The EU Commission would like to know what role cargo bikes play as part of the micro mobility revolution concerning traffic safety. We know that cargo bikes are safe, however, there is currently virtually no data available. To gather evidence on the safety of cargo bikes, we have designed two surveys one aimed at cycle logistics operators and all other commercial cargo bike fleet operators and a second one for manufacturers.
If we cannot gather evidence that cargo bikes are part of the solution, the EU could in the worst case, significantly restrict new cargo bikes (i.e. subject to EU type approval) and suggest to impose tighter traffic regulations. For more information please consult this briefing.
