Increasing bicycle traffic causes the occurrence of related phenomena, which were not observed before. However, it can be observed that the cycling infrastructure of Warsaw is used in various ways, and some cyclists do not respect the law. The aim of this article is to examine the behaviour of cyclists in various road traffic situations. Empirical research was carried out for 15 objects located in Warsaw. Selected facilities were divided into 7 types of road infrastructure. The research was carried out by means of video recording with the use of a camera. Cyclists were classified by age, gender and type of bike used. As a result of the study, the number of correct and incorrect behaviours of cyclists was determined. It was found that the largest share of prohibited behaviours occurs in case of complicated solutions of cycling infrastructure and in case of its discontinuity. The behaviour of cyclists during the red signal display was also assessed. It was noted that this signal is better respected at road crossings than at tram crossings. Case studies have also been carried out and opportunities for improvement identified.
