Chicago, IL

What data is expected?

Data on all motor-vehicle-related crashes. This should include crashes with pedestrians and bicyclists (which may or may not be divided into multiple datasets). Please note: This dataset refers to data on specific incidents, not monthly or annual totals. Data on where and when crashes are occuring is crucial for both measuring street safety and figuring out where interventions are needed. (More info)
