Title: Understanding Bicyclist-Motorist Crashes in Minneapolis, Minnesota
Prepared by: City of Minneapolis Public Works Department – Bicycle and Pedestrian Section
Date: January 15, 2013
Summary: The 2011 Minneapolis Bicycle Master Plan calls for an ambitious 10 percent annual reduction in bicyclist-motorist crashes. Without proper understanding of what is causing crashes, implementing countermeasures will be difficult and achieving reduction goals will be challenging. By compiling nearly 3,000 crash records from the past decade, this research takes the first step in building local understanding of bicyclist-motorist crashes in Minneapolis. The findings in this report should inform future design, planning and policy related to bicycles and bicyclist safety in Minneapolis.
