Over the past five and a half years, there have been almost 2,000 times when someone walking through Long Beach was hit by a car, motorcycle, bicycle or other type of vehicle.

There were 1,982 traffic collisions that involved pedestrians reported to the Long Beach Police Department between Jan. 1, 2013 and July 1, 2018.

As part of its Safe Streets series, the Long Beach Post mapped each of those crashes to help readers gain perspective on one of the challenges residents face getting around by foot in the city’s neighborhoods.

The heat map shows how concentrated those crashes are in certain areas of the city.

You can also zoom in and click any red pin with a + sign to expand it and see all the incidents at that location. Click a single pin to see the date of that specific crash.

All locations are approximate down to the 100-block number or intersection.

The blue pins indicate schools.

The Long Beach Post obtained the data used for this map through a California Public Records Act request to the Long Beach Police Department.
