CHP Traffic Incident Reports: BICYCLE ACCIDENTS
This application searches the California Highway Patrol realtime
traffic incident data feed for anything involving "bike" or "bicycl" in the
state of California. The Traffic Incident data feed covers only state roads
under CHP jurisdiction, which mostly means Interstate highways and
numbered California state routes.
This is a real time search. I also have a cron job that hunts for incidents involving bicycles every 15 minutes,
and another cron to hunt for fatalities once every half hour. You can see the log of bicycle incidents at
. Fatalities can be followed on Twitter at
Usually, you will see "No incidents found." I posted sample output
in this blog post
You can also add a single search term by appending "q=[search term]" to the end of the URL; for example http://www.cyclelicio.us/script/chpbike.php5?q=TOY
will find all instances involving Toyotas.
No incidents found.
