What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the total number of pedestrian crashes that occurred in the City of Lima during the study period 2011 - 2015.  Pedestrian crashes in the City of Lima went down from 96 when compared to the 2009-2013 study period.  With respect to raw numbers of pedestrian crashes the City of Lima was tied with the City of Mansfield with the fourth most pedestrian crashes when compared to Ohio city of similar size, with each city experiencing 81 such crashes.  The City of Euclid experienced the most pedestrian crashes (86); while, the City of Lancaster (84) and the City of Newark (83) ranked second and third respectively. When a standard crash rate, i.e. "crashes per 100,000 population", is applied, the City of Lima ranked second with a crash rate of 208.9; while, the City of Lancaster ranked first with a crash rate of 216.6  and Euclid ranked third with a crash rate of 175.8.

Why this is important?   Numbers of pedestrian crashes, as are all crashes, indicators of the safety of county and township roads, city streets, as well as state and interstate highways.   Tracking and examining the 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 that occurred in Allen County during 2011 - 2015 study period compared to the number of crashes occurring in Ohio cities of similar size - 30,000 to 50,000.
