For dangerous behavior:
OurStreets is a smartphone app that can help make Rochester a safer city for all of us to navigate.
It is a one-stop shop to crowdsource dangerous driving behavior and other dangerous situations such as cars parked in bike lanes.
For example, if you are riding in a bike lane and you approach a vehicle blocking it, you can simply:
2) snap a picture, and
3) upload the information to the app
All data collected within the Rochester City limits will be scrubbed of personal information and aggregated on a city map. This is not an app to make people look bad or report crime. It is a tool that will allow us to quantify where and when people who bike and walk are vulnerable. We Bike Rochester will use this information to advocate for geographically specific, data-driven solutions.
If you would like to report an issue not listed above, such as a gap in the bike path network or areas where bike parking is needed, please contact us at email@example.com. We actively collect this information to improve our infrastructure and continue making bicycling in Rochester safer for everyone.
