Kinder Institute for Urban Research   (Houston)

This report examines if there is any colocation pattern (i.e., locate next to each other) between pedestrian- or cyclist-vehicle collisions and intersections in the city of Houston. We find that, for example, traffic light-controlled intersections are the most likely intersections in Houston to attract accidents, especially fatal ones. We also identified the specific locations of these intersections to inform policy makers.
