Accidents in May and June in 2012 were significantly higher than the ten year average

In 2011 the top three neighborhoods for auto/bicycle accidents were Lincoln Park,
Capitol Hill and City Park West.
The top three neighborhoods from January through August 23, 2012 were Five Points,
Capitol Hill and Civic Center.
The majority of violations written for bicycle infractions were; bicycles subject to traffic
control devices and bicycles subject to traffic laws.
The highest violations for auto/bicycle citations were bicycles subject to traffic laws and
riding bicycles on sidewalks.
According to Traffic Engineering, motorists are at fault slightly over 50% of the time in
auto/bicycle accidents.
