Indianapolis and the state of Indiana were chosen by FHWA as a Focus City and State due to their high numbers of bicycle and pedestrian crashes. Indianapolis launched a pedestrian safety program that included a deep dive into crash data, developed a Pedestrian Safety Action Plan, and is launching community engagement and education citywide.

This course explores the bicycle-pedestrian data available and identifies emerging trends across the state. Crash hot spots are discussed, along with an analysis of some of the issues contributing to these trends. The presenters dissect the causes behind the statistics and put the human factor into the raw data.
