Los Angeles has a higher rate of car accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists than the rest of the nation — pedestrians account for about a third of all traffic fatalities and about 3 percent of bicycle fatalities.

The national average of pedestrian-involved fatalities is 11.4 percent and about 1.7 percent of the fatalities were bicyclists nationally.

This is according to a study by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. (You can view the entire study below the map.)

We want to know what intersections and locations are most dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. Where have you seen or had issues?
