Urban Demographic Shift of Pedestrian and Bicyclist Collisions, Equity, and Police Enforcement

The project aims to address the rising pedestrian fatalities nationally by examining the geographic shifts in pedestrian fatalities and injuries and their relationship with neighborhood demographic changes, police enforcement, and social equity patterns. The research team will analyze multi-year crash and injury data from various regions and collaborate with police departments to study the correlation between police enforcement and collision rates. The project will produce a technical report, interactive data visualization tools, and recommendations for safety treatments and equitable police enforcement.
