Bike safety in Germany

How can seeing the city in new light lead to changes in personal, professional, or political decision-making?

On this basis, my team dealt with a set of data from the Police of Hamburg that contains all traffic accidents between 2012 and 2016. We have looked at the question of how to determine the status of road safety, which data is used and how to use this basis to make decisions on adapting the infrastructure. We have taken a critical look at the current method of collecting data in order to improve the bicycle infrastructure and have found that a solid data base actually does not exist and that the current strategy is merely „driving on sight“. For this reason, we have developed an idea of how to improve this infrastructure planning by crowdsourcing data and smartly using maps in the form of a navigation app for mobile phones.
