dc.description.abstractBicycling has been proven to be beneficial for mental health, physical health, and the green environment, but is considered one of the most unsafe modes of transportation. Existing research proves that cyclists are twelve times more likely to be killed in a crash than an in-car occupant, especially in Southern states. This research focuses on two main problems: (1) The attitude and relationship between driver and cyclist and (2) the dangers of cycling in the South and the need for a safe biking infrastructure. San Marcos is an up and coming city that needs improvement in both. By better understating how drivers and cyclists behave on the rode, and creating better-connected biking networks, San Marcos can become a safe city for cyclists, and can integrate a more sustainable mode of transportation.en_US
