Poster: New Jersey Bicycle Crash Analysis (2008-2013)
In response to the FHWA Safety Office designating New Jersey a Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Focus State, the New Jersey DOT developed a Bicycle Safety Action Plan. The 2016 Plan documents the current state of bicycling in New Jersey, and identifies and proposes actions to improve safety. The process included an analysis of bicycle crashes and trends for the latest six years available (2008-2013) including frequency, severity, location, demographics and behavioral factors. This poster presents the key findings: who is being hit, by whom, where and under what circumstances. Affectionately called “The Diner Placemat” due to its colorful and graphic layout, this poster was originally developed for presentation to the New Jersey Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
