Distance of Cars from Cyclists

Keywords: regression


For each of ten streets with bike lanes, investigators measured the distance between the centre line and a cylist in the bike lane. They used photography to determine the distance between the cyclist and a passing car on those same ten streets, recording all distances in feet.
