Samenvatting This report describes a study into the bicycle lighting use. In this study the lighting on bicycles, on mopeds, and on cycles with auxiliary motors was specifically investigated for the first time regarding both the front and rear light. The measurements were conducted in January and February, 1996. The percentage of bicycles using front lighting had fallen to 51%, when limiting firstly to the same four measurement locations as used in 1988 (65%) and in 1993 (54%). Here, Amsterdam represented the greatest anomaly with a user percentage of 27%. The number of locations were extended to ten with the latest measurements. For these ten locations (including Amsterdam), the percentage of bicycles that used front lighting was 55%, while for moped riders and cyclists with auxiliary motors, the figures were 94% and 91%, respectively. The operative rear light figures were only a few percent below the front light figures. The rear reflector presence was 94%. If there was no rear reflector, the rear light only burned in 13% of the cases. Cyclists aged over 25 years used lighting more often than the younger age categories. Women more often used their lights than men. See also B 27764 (IRRD 818165) and C 2411 (IRRD 862253).
