TA Rolls Out CrashStat Improvements

E. 33rd St. and Park Ave. was the city’s most dangerous intersection between 1995 and 2005.

Transportation Alternatives’ CrashStat 2.0 is now out of beta, with improvements in performance and functionality.

Originally launched in 2004, CrashStat allows users to access official data on city pedestrian- and cyclist-involved crashes from 1995 to 2005.

Stats are now viewable by community district.
