ICBC recently posted crash data on their website and included information about pedestrians and cyclists. The also includes a very handy mapping tool which I used to look at crash locations in the South of Fraser. Besides giving insight into high-crash locations, the data also gives a clue as to where there is a higher concentration of cyclists and pedestrians, and where active transportation facilities need to be improved.

The one thing that stands out for me in this data is that the main arterial roads in the South of Fraser like Scott Road, King George, 104th, and 200th, need to be made safer for active transportation users. It is interesting to note that Fraser Highway with its completed sidewalks and bike lanes has less crashes than other major corridors in Surrey for example.
