City’s Most Dangerous Crosswalks Identified

City’s Most Dangerous Crosswalks Identified

Quebec City (Quebec) December 6, 2014 – Accès Transports Viables, a Québec City based lobby group for alternative transport options in the city, has compiled an impressive list of all traffic accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists between 2005 and 2013.  The resulting information has been made available to the public in the form of an interactive map available here.

Using publicly-available data from the Société d’Assurance-Automobile du Québec, the non-profit organisation tallied 3 289 accidents involving motorists and either pedestrians or bicyclists.  The effort is part of the documents that Accès Transports Viables is presenting to the public consultation on the future of the Saint-Roch district’s urban development plan.  The Saint-Roch district is among the densest in terms of pedestrian-motorist collisions, though there are also a high number of collisions noted near the University sector and the nearby shopping malls.

Accès Transports Viables hopes the information will raise awareness of the growing need for streets safe for those not getting around in motor vehicles.
