I just ran across the East Bay Bicycle Coalition’s Hazard Report Database (via Urban Review St. Louis). The database contains hazards to cycling as reported by cyclists and allows advocates to track hazards in their area.
It doesn’t look like such a database exists in New York. Too bad. This information would be an good addition to the crash maps at Transportation Alternatives. Of course, a database would only be useful if people are willing to enter information. I wonder if there is any interest in NYC?
