After a long wait, the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) has compiled and released the most recent data regarding dooring accidents. This data covers dooring accidents that occurred within the city of Chicago in 2014. In the graphic below, we summarize the arterial roads that had the most dooring accidents throughout each of the preceding years (for which data is currently available).
Dooring Accidents: Top 10 Arterial Roads (Ranked By Number Of Accidents)
A Note About Timing
It is our hope that IDOT will release 2015 statistics much more quickly than it did with this 2014 version, which we just obtained at the tail end of 2015/early 2016. We remain in contact with IDOT throughout the year, and we will post an update as soon as we receive the next report and are able to analyze the data.
