Pedestrian Crash Study

The Pedestrian Crash Study looked at trends around pedestrian crashes over the past 10 years. The Study tries better understand where, how and why pedestrian crashes are occurring in Minneapolis.

Learn about the study


Crashes are complex events and often cannot be attributed to a single contributing cause, but a few trends stand out from the analysis:

  • Crashes are concentrated to a small number of streets
  • Majority of pedestrian crashes happen at intersections
  • Most intersection crashes happen at traffic signals
  • Pedestrian crashes involving left-turning vehicles were more likely than right-turning crashes
  • Low-income and non-white majority areas experience more pedestrian crashes per capita than other areas of the City of Minneapolis
  • Older pedestrians are more likely to be involved in severe or fatal pedestrian crashes
  • Slower vehicles speeds result in less severe crashes.
