Evaluating Research on Data Linkage to Assess Underreporting of Pedestrian and Bicyclist Injury in Police Crash Data

Traffic safety decisions are based predominantly on information from police collision reports. However, a number of studies suggest that such reports tend to underrepresent bicycle and pedestrian collisions. Underreporting could lead to inaccurate evaluation of crash rates and may under- or overestimate the effects of road safety countermeasures. This review examined ten studies that used data linkage to explore potential underreporting of pedestrian and/or bicyclist injury in police collision reports.

Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training Program (CPBST)

The Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) program is a joint project of UC Berkeley SafeTREC and California Walks (Cal Walks). Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Register now for one of our Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) workshops coming up in Planada and Blue Lake Rancheria to identify priorities to make walking and biking safer for everyone - including seniors, students, parents, and people with disabilities. These workshops train neighborhood residents and health, transportation and safety advocates on how to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety to make California communities safer and more pleasant to walk and bike.

Street Story: A Platform for Community Engagement

Share stories about where you've been in a crash or near miss, or where you feel safe or unsafe traveling using our Street Story tool.

Focus Cities Program

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) selected California as a Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Focus State in 2015 due to its high rate of pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities.

Text Version of CPBST Interactive Map

Below you will find a web accessible, text version of our Community Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) Program Map. It provides summary reports, where available, for each workshop proceeding, as well as ideas identified during the process and recommendations for pedestrian/bicycle safety projects, policies, and programs.

Injury Prevention and Control

Injury is the leading cause of death for ages 1- 44, and the leading cause of years of potential life lost to age 65, surpassing heart disease and cancer.

Cooper, Jill F.

The UC Berkeley Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC) and California Walks (Cal Walks) developed the Community Pedestrian Bicycle Safety Training (CPBST) program to train and mobilize communities to address pedestrian and bicycle safety and to strengthen collaboration with local officials and agency staff. SafeTREC and Cal Walks work hand-in-hand with communities to plan and facilitate workshops that are reflective of each community’s needs and priorities.
