Street Safety: Traffic Crashes Involving Bicycles and Pedestrians

The Street Safety: All Traffic Crashes indicator measures the total number of traffic crash incidents each year in the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area and Champaign County. Street safety is an important part of community safety, especially as interest in and use of alternative means of transportation increase.

The number of crashes involving bicycles and the number of crashes involving pedestrians were both higher in 2018 than the beginning of the measured timeframes (1998 in the urbanized area, 2012 in Champaign County), though both have seen periods of decrease as well as increase in the measured timeframes. Crash injuries and fatalities for bicycle crashes and pedestrian crashes have fluctuated over the course of their measured time periods (2003-2018 in the urbanized area, 2012-2018 in Champaign County).

This data was sourced from the Champaign-Urbana Urban Area Safety Plan and Rural Champaign County Area Safety Plan, prepared and released by the Champaign Urbana Urbanized Area Transportation Study (CUUATS).
