Car-to-bicycle accidents account for 40% of all crossing collisions, hence preventive measures are required. We analyzed 1,367 car-to-bicycle accidents that occurred in Fukuoka City from 2015 to 2017. According to the analysis, accidents occurred more frequently at 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, and tend to occur more frequently during the day than at night. It was also found that the rate of accidents by teenagers and female cyclists was high, when analyzed by parties involved and attributes such as age and gender. On further research, focusing on the intersections with frequent accidents, we found that bicycle colliding to the car from left contributed to about 60% of accidents, Hence, it is necessary to reduce the traffic approaching from right side to the bicycle from the sidewalk.
