Have you wished you knew how safe each street is for cycling? Thanks to Deputy Chief David Doan, Mihai Peteu, Sergeant David Krumer, Paul Bringetto, Tait McCarthy, and Lyke Thompson … we have displayed all the collision data from 2008 recorded by LAPD (involving cyclists.) A single red dot represents a collision, and a larger red dot with a 2 or a 3 or a 4 in it represents 2 or 3 or 4 collisions. As you can see, East Hollywood, the defacto center of bike culture in LA, has plenty of accidents.
Thanks to Bikeside for this super helpful bit of data porn!
