Experience a Close Call on the Road? Report It!
Have you experienced a road hazard or a close call crash? Report it to Vision Zero Cleveland to help remedy the situation and create safer streets. The Data and Evaluation Subcommittee of the Vision Zero Task Force created a Hazard or Close Calls Form, currently available on Bike Cleveland’s website, for road users to report hazardous road conditions and locations where they experienced an “almost crash.”
There are some hazardous conditions can be remedied in a number of hours, such as bicycle lane sweeping, and riders should call 311 or fill out the online form to request these direct services. Other close call crash incidents collected from the reporting form can help inform longer-term solutions such as street design and maintenance as Vision Zero Cleveland’s efforts moves forward.
The reporter can be a pedestrian, a cyclist, or a vehicle driver of any kind. The incident can be between any two types of road users as well! You are able to pinpoint your location on the map, share details of the incident and even upload a photo or video if it helps explain what happened. The map on the form shows real-time updates of where others have submitted close calls. Help us spread the word so we can collect incidents and inform change on your streets!
