Report - Chicago: Bicycle and Pedestrian Crashes in Illinois: 2004-2007

Prepared by the [Illinois] Active Transportation Alliance, this report examines pedestrian/automobile "crash levels by geographical location. This report is a starting point for finer analysis that can develop effective strategies to reduce crashes in Chicagoland. Effective strategies will focus not only on specific dangerous locations, but also on the causes of crashes — speed, street design and driver, pedestrian and bicyclist behavior."

[I think this is worth reviewing, and worth considering whether such a report could be prepared for your community, or even whether the proper statistics are being tracked to enable such a report to be generated].
