Bike Accident Data Available for New Jersey

A fact not known by many is that bike accident data for New Jersey, and most other states for that matter, post the location and description of every accident reported to local or state police officials. While this information is interesting to lookat in terms of the table on the website, it really doesn’t give you a sense of where and why the accidents are happening. Fortunately, Vertices LLC., in conjucntion with the West Windsor Bicycle and Pedestrian Alliance (WWBPA) will be putting all bike crash inforation regarding West Windsor, NJ in an online, interactive mapping website. The website will also contain all sidewalk-quality data collected earlier this year by the WWBPA. So check the website www.mappler.com/wwbpa in the coming weeks to look at the relationship betwee road conditions and accident locaitons, I think you will be surprised.
