Right-side hazards

On city streets with lots of driveways, alleys, parking and intersections, most of the look-but-failed-to-see errors that affect bicyclists originate from the right side of the road. That’s not to belittle the danger from the left (particularly from left-turning drivers) or behind, which tends to produce more injurious crashes.

As far as I know the best place to start is still the North Carolina Bicycle Crash Data Tool, but here’s a sampling of other stuff from my online bin of bike safety studies ( industrializedcyclist.com/lies.html ):
