A map is available to help cyclists report incidents and near-misses. The map is available on the Collideoscope website. To use the map, enter a postcode and click on the spot where the incident occurred. The incidents are logged and passed to the council’s highways department and campaign groups. For example, a cyclist has reported that under the railway bridge on St Luke’s Road a driver tried to squeeze past and clipped their bag, and several accidents have been reported on the Wells Road, Totterdown.
The map also includes annual data from the Department of Transport on incidents in which people were injured or died. To access this information, tick the box ‘Show reports from the Department of Transport.
