Hi, thanks for being interested in Chicago traffic crashes data. I hope you're more patient than me. I've been asking the Illinois Department of Transportation every month for this data since August.
The Chicago Crash Browser now has data for traffic crashes in 2014 in Chicago, and it shows car crashes in addition to the usual bike and pedestrian crashes.
Previously the Chicago Crash Browser showed only bicycle and pedestrian crashes, for the years 2005-2012.
I'm excited that Robert Guico, a major contributor to the Chicago Crash Browser codebase, and I have finally met. Robert came to last week's Open Gov Hack Night and we walked through the design change...
I am elated to inform you that the Chicago Crash Browser has been updated with 2012 bicycle and pedestrian data, alongside map and interactive changes like custom search distance.
