Document location: 
A detailed study of the comparative risks and dangers of providing segregated cycling facilities, on major distributor roads in the Netherlands.

Conclusion: “In a sustainably safe road traffic it is essential to have adjoining or separate bicycle paths alongside distributor roads in order to have a proper separation between motor vehicles and other traffic. Additional facilities are necessary at intersections in order to reduce the speed differences between cyclists and other traffic as much as possible. Priority regulations, speed bumps, and plateaus are suitable to achieve this.”
