Data Protected Bike Lanes, Oct 2019

On Wednesday, October 16, BikePGH, in collaboration with the How’s My Driving app, rallied nearly 70 volunteers to disperse along select Pittsburgh bike lanes to count the number of times vehicles were parking, standing, or loading in the bike-only lanes.

Dubbed the “Data Protected Bike Lane Project,” volunteers logged 123 violations, all captured during the morning, lunch and evening rush. Using the How’s My Driving app, a new tool that allows anyone to quickly report dangerous driving behavior, these volunteers covered Forbes Ave (between Bigelow and Morewood), Penn Ave (Stanwix to 11th), Allegheny Circle, and Third Ave (Stanwix to Smithfield).

Data Notes

The data was collected using the How's My Driving App, and would use the GPS sensors of the phone to place the location. It may be difficult to determine which side of the street the violation occurred on, for instance. The "address" field is the block/location that the volunteer was stationed at.
