5222 motorists and bicyclists have replied to questions about interactions and conflicts in traffic. In general they are understanding and considerate toward each other, but there are nevertheless some interplay problems. To the bicyclists, being overlooked at crossings and close overtakings are the largest problems. To the car drivers, non-use of bicycle lights is the largest problem. Some bicyclists have experienced aggressive driver behaviour during the last year. Such conflicts are often caused by the fact that bicyclist are often seen as creating unnecessary obstacles in traffic. Still, the interplay problems that are important for accident risk are related to the fact that car drivers often overlook bicyclists, and bicyclists are often “invisible” or barely visible to drivers.
