What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the total number of bicycle crashes that occurred in the City of Lima during the study period 2011 - 2015.  The City of Lima experienced 86 bicycle crashes, during the study period.  When compared to cities of similar size - 30,000 to 50,000 population - the City of Lima ranked #1; the City of Newark in Licking County ranking #2 with 73 crashes; and the City of Findlay in Hancock County ranked #3 with 70 crashes.  When a standard crash rate, i.e. "crashes per 100,000 population", is applied, the crash rate for the City of Lima was 221.8 per 100,000 population - compared to the City of Marion in Marion County with 171.0, and the City of Findlay with a crash rate of 169.9.  

Why this is important?   Numbers of bicycle crashes are indicators of the safety of county and township roads, city streets, as well as state highways.   Examining crash contributing factors allows planners, engineers, law enforcement, as well as emergency responders to identify problems and work to reduce the incidence of these events.

Technical Note:     This is the number of crashes occurring in Allen County during the study period 2011 - 2015 compared to the number of crashes occurring in Ohio cities of similar size - 30,000 to 50,000 in population.
