SF Cyclists - Accident Report Site
Filed under: general, bike commuting
Posted by: The Cyclofiend @ 10:40 am

Mirroring this post from the good folks over at Box Dog Bikes -

“A friend of
mine that works for the Bay Citizen came by the shop yesterday.  He said
they’re putting together a map that shows where all the bike accidents
are happening in San Francisco.  It will have a ton of data like what
are the causes, and what kinds of vehicles were involved when it
happened.  Unfortunately its based mostly on police reports, which
probably don’t reflect how many crashes there are in the city.  They are
launching this application on Monday and are trying to get some people
to submit their unreported accidents before then.  Please follow the link below to report yours.”

From the Bay Citizen:

“The Bay Citizen is asking bikers in San Francisco to submit
data about bike collisions they’ve experienced in the past in the Bay
Area. We’re building a new data application that displays collision
data in San Francisco on an in-depth interactive map, to help people
understand what’s happening on the streets and where more safety
measures are needed. We’re using data from SFPD, but we know many
accidents are never reported to the police. If you were in an accident
but never reported it, please take a couple minutes to fill out
this short form
and let us know where, when and how it happened. We will add your data
to this project, and we really appreciate your contribution!
