Research is being conducted at Edinburgh Napier University on “Driver compliance with advanced stop lines with and without coloured surfacing in Edinburgh” …
Some years ago, a Napier University research project suggested strongly that coloured surfacing has a very significant effect in reducing motorist intrusion into bus and cycle lanes. Now a new Napier study is looking at driver compliance with ASLs (some people call them advance stop boxes) at traffic lights in Edinburgh, including whether or not a coloured surface has any effect on compliance.
Part of the project is an online survey of opinions about Advanced Stop Lines (the survey includes some pages specifically for cyclists and some for drivers). Click on the above link to take part – note that once you have taken the survey the link will not take you to it any more. Closing date is 30 July.
The study is being undertaken as an MSc project. If you have anything else to contribute to the project the contact is Lynn.RussellATedinburgh.gov.uk. Once the report of the research is publicly available we hope to have it on our site, though that will not be for some time.
