The City of Los Angeles and the University of Southern California undertook a partnership in the use of advanced data analysis techniques to assess traffic collision, traffic engineering data and other analytic factors with the intent of identifying and reducing pedestrian and bicycle vs auto collisions. This project hopes to determine factors, anomalies, and patterns in pedestrian and bicycle vs auto collisions. As well as provide the DOT and LAPD with additional data to assist and expedite traffic engineering modifications and plans to improve safety at high risk locations.
