Why focus on intersection safety?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Traffic Safety Facts, 29 percent of all nationwide bicyclist-involved crash fatalities in 2018 occurred within roadway intersections. Between 2014 and 2018 throughout the Dallas – Fort Worth Metropolitan Planning Area, 63 percent of all bicycle crashes happened within an intersection, and 12 percent of those crashes resulted in either a fatality or serious injury.
