Chicago Pedestrian Crash Analysis

As a part of a federally funded initiative to improve pedestrian safety within Chicago, the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT) completed a comprehensive analysis of pedestrian crashes within the city.

This study will be used as to inform the development of the Chicago Pedestrian Plan, new engineering treatments throughout the city, and our ongoing pedestrian safety education efforts.

CDOT is committed to making Chicago the most pedestrian friendly city in the country and recognizes that safe streets are an essential first step.
