Toronto cycling collisions get the interactive map treatment


Here's a nice bit of work from the Globe on bike collisions in the city. Using data obtained from Toronto's Traffic Safety Unit, the paper has put together a map that plots 25 years of cycling accidents in the city. Organized around where and when accidents took place, the project hints at the fact that Toronto could do more to make the streets safe for cyclists. Not only do we have "the highest percentage of bicycle collisions by population among major cities," but the accident rate hasn't changed much over the last decade. There are more cyclists on the road, to be sure, but the stats still aren't particularly encouraging.
