Reconnect Rochester is pleased to host this Monroe County Crash Map to raise awareness and support local advocacy efforts around safe streets in our community.

In the U.S., pedestrian fatalities have skyrocketed, increasing by 46% from 2009-2016. This map shows that in Monroe County, 4,000 crashes from 2010-2017 involved bicyclists and pedestrians. Eight people die on our local streets every year as a result of these crashes. We must do better.
