The author believes that the research will enable to judge more accurately the impact of different types of roundabouts on the safety of cyclists, but also on other road users. It is hoped that definite recommendations can be made with regards to safer roundabout design. As a result, road-controlling authorities may have to apply more stringent checks before commissioning new multi-lane roundabouts. It is also possible that current design standards may have to be changed.
