Some Simple Facts

In California, every traffic collision is entered into the  Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System, and that data is made available online.

These documents compile SWITRS data for Colorado Boulevard in Los Angeles, between Eagledale and Avenue 64. This three-mile stretch roughly coincides with the boundary of Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council and the 90041 zipcode.

We are not traffic analysts, however, it seems clear that there has been approximately one reported accident a week over the past five years. More than half of the accidents involve injuries.

What should one make of this data?

We challenge others to digest the comparable information for Colorado Boulevard in our neighboring cities of Pasadena and Glendale, and share your results with this blog.
