What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the total number of bicycle crashes that occurred in the City of Lima during the study period 2012 - 2016.  The City of Lima ranked #3, experiencing 72 bicycle crashes, during the study period.  When compared to cities of similar size - 30,000 to 50,000 population -the City of Findlay in Hancock County ranked #1 with 78 crashes; the City of Newark in Licking County ranked #2 with 74 such crashes.  When a standard crash rate, i.e. "crashes per 100,000 population", is applied, the crash rate for the City of Lima was 185.7 (#2) compared to the City of Findlay with a crash rate of 189.3 (#1) and the City of Newark with a crash rate of 155.6 (#3).  

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 2012 - 2016 compared to the number of crashes occurring in Ohio cities of similar size - 30,000 to 50,000 in population.
