The website now has a database of 200+ car vs. bike crash records dating back to 2005 on the site. This can help you find and avoid high-risk crash zones for your future rides. The resource allows you to share stories, and search for and report dangerous intersections.

The interactive site automatically maps each report and readers can click “show me” to see the danger zone’s exact location. This is a great resource not only for bicyclists, but also for any local residents who want to make their roads safer and more inviting for non-motorized users.
