Philadelphia Traffic Victims
The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia is the only organization in the City of Philadelphia to track all traffic fatalities in real time. We do so in order to bring greater attention to the victims, identifying them by name (when possible) and doing whatever we can with the victims’ families to make sure their losses are more than just a statistic, chalked up as inevitable in a city where traffic crashes are way too high.
That site, which can be viewed at PHLTrafficVictims.org, is an unofficial tally, and put together through media reports and a partnership with the Philadelphia Police Department, who send us all victims’ statistics on a quarterly basis.
See all Philadelphia traffic victims at this link. And please share the link so more can better understand how many people are lost in Philadelphia, each year, due to traffic violence.
