Collisions and Gender

Since the New York Times has published and examined New York’s Pedestrian Safety Study and Action Plan and highlighted collisions and gender, it seems like a good time to look at DC’s reports on the same. Since NYC and DC combined metrics in different ways, however, the same type of data isn’t presented – for instance, it can not be determined from DC’s report what kind of driver in what action results in the most pedestrian-involved accidents.

Again, from DDOT’s Traffic Safety Statistics Report 2006-2008 (available upon request).

First, pedestrian involved collisions by (pedestrian) gender:

Next, bicyclist involved collisions by gender (though it doesn’t specify that it’s the cyclists gender, it’s assumed, based on pedestrian data presented the same way):

Finally, all collisions by driver’s gender (including but not exclusive to pedestrian and cyclist involvement):
