Introduction

The Motorcycle Collision Map Viewer provides a simple means to explore motorcycle collisions in California. Users can view motorcycle collisions for a city or unincorporated county area and toggle by collision severity or alcohol involvement. The results are summarized in the map and in a list of collisions. The individual collision locations can be seen in a Google Street View profile page or downloaded into a spreadsheet.
