17 BIKE VS VEHICLE COLLISIONS-SOUTH GATE RD(2.5MILE)
Analysis of 17 Bike vs Vehicle Collisions (Traffic Collision Reports): South Gate Road, entrance to Kiosk (2.5 miles). Every week drivers pass cyclists unsafely at or near one of the 22 blind curves as travel up this dangerous section of road. Since 2015, we have offered to partner with MDSP/district officials to analyze All Traffic Collision Reports. Unfortunately, Park officials have refused to collaborate with us or conduct/share their analysis. As a result, we have been compelled to conduct the analysis and publish the results. District officials should analyze All Traffic Collision Reports and publish a report (2010 to present).
