Crash Tracker and Reporting Form

If you are here to report a car parked in the bike lane, a crash, a near-miss, or a dangerous road, your report will help us advocate for lasting change for the road.

We’re so sorry if you’ve been in (or witnessed) a crash or altercation. We hope you’re OK.

You can find more information on what to do after a crash here.

This form will ask you questions so that we can gather information regarding traffic incidents in the Washington area to make sure that all road users are treated fairly by local government officials when they are involved in an incident and to track areas of concern to make sure we advocate for better infrastructure.

The information you submit is not passed on to any police department or corporation and any names and email addresses will be kept strictly confidential. However, you will have the option to send your report to your local elected official and department of transportation to encourage them to make the necessary changes to the road.

We may also use aggregated information from the database to illustrate issues facing road users—dangerous intersections, flawed administrative processes, or unsafe infrastructure.
