Colorado DOT Studies Bicycle & Pedestrian Crashes

Out of 208 accidents at top 25 intersections, nearly 70% of the crashes involved collision with a bicycle. 30% of the crashes involved collision with pedestrians. Of the pedestrian crashes, just over 10% involved school age children. This amounts to 3% of the total number of crashes reported.

Over half of those 208 accidents occurred at intersection locations (59%), while 17% occurred at a driveway access followed by non-intersection urban locations where 11% crashes occurred.

Most of the crashes at these locations occurred on a leveled roadway (77%), during daylight (77%), when the road was dry (89%), with no adverse weather condition (89%).
