Here Is a Map of Bicycle Crashes Between 2011-2014

As 2014 waned to a close, a bicyclist was killed on Christmas Eve in West Goshen Township, near West Chester, Pa. It’s an all too familiar story in Philadelphia and its suburbs—something we try to emphasize here every so often.

Traffic crashes and deaths: They’re preventable. Increased enforcement and expanded infrastructure along with a Vision Zero policy can help bring about change, and we’ve laid out how to make that happen here and here.

Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia research director John Boyle has been logging bicycle crashes based on newspaper reports on the below map since 2011, and will continue to do so in the future. Check out the map and key below, showing crashes in the Greater Philadelphia area between 2011 and 2014. Red indicators mean the crash was fatal; blue implies the cyclist lived; no dot in the marker means the crash was a hit and run.
