Chicago Dept. of Transportation Needs Stories of Bicycle Crashes

The Chicago Department of Transportation is looking for stories about bicycle-related traffic crashes. CDOT plans to use these stories as a part of a traffic-safety video it is creating in conjunction with the Chicago Police Department. Here is a link to the downloads for the forms to submit a testimonial to CDOT.

It is important that the city receive as many testimonials as possible from responsible, safety-minded cyclists who have been a victim in an accident. There is always a concern that CDOT would receive an inordinate number of testimonials that "crazy bikers" were the cause of most bicycle-related traffic crashes.

If you have any questions regarding this post or you have been the victim of a bicycle-related traffic crash, please contact Mike Keating at
