This experience-focused activity seeks to draw attention to the main risks for vulnerable users and to optimise interaction with this category. This is done using the bicycle and motorbike simulator, but  the participants can also try out various new urban mobility machine such as segways, solowheels and electric scooters, as well as different types of electric bikes.

Why
The activity’s purpose is twofold: to cut the number of accidents involving vulnerable users, which is vital, since the accident rates for pedestrians and cyclists just keeps on rising. Accidents involving two-wheeled motorised vehicles remain around the same level (compared to accidents involving all other types of users, which are falling). Then there’s the fact that accidents involving vulnerable users more often result in serious injuries.

Secondly, it’s not always easy to try out these new types of travel devices or electric bikes before deciding whether to buy, so with this activity, we’re seeking to offer a solution to both these issues.

Results
The participants receive advice on how to behave, both as vulnerable users themselves and as drivers interacting with them on our roads. They also get to try out different types of travel devices to see if they offer a viable solution for (part of) their own travel needs.
