Campus Pedestrian and Bicyclist Safety at Three California College Campuses

Report from researchers at UC Berkeley, UCLA and Sacramento State analyzing various sources of data concerning pedestrian and bicyclist safety near and on their campuses. Data included:

  • More than 3,000 reponses to an online survey distributed to all three campus populations
  • Police-reported crash data as well as self-reported crashes from the survey
  • Analysis of pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure, along with land use and urban form, to determine correlations between design and danger
  • Identification of collision hotspots and possible design changes that could improve safety.
