Key Takeaways

  1. Excessive speed and high speed limits contribute significantly to the severity of road collisions, especially for those involving bicyclists and pedestrians.

  2. The vast majority (77%) of bicycle fatalities on LA County roads took place on multi-lane roads, often with three or more lanes in each direction. These major arterials signify to drivers that the road is designed for them, rather than for all users.

  3. An astounding 85% of fatalities in 2022 occurred on roadways without bike lanes. Region-wide strategies must be adopted to close significant gaps in our existing network.

  4. With over half of all fatalities occurring at night, the region must focus on strategies that address night-time road safety.

  5. Bicycle fatalities are heavily concentrated in low-income, Black and Latinx neighborhoods and along arterials with high traffic volumes.
