CHP Traffic Incident Reports: BICYCLE ACCIDENTS



Cyclelicious. 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 www.cyclelicio.us/chp. Fatalities can be followed on Twitter at @chpfatal.

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.
