Is Cotham Road safe?

As a background to our proposal of zebra crossing and bike parking up at the top of Cotham Road, here is the Bristol Traffic collection of collisions on Cotham Road. This site has only been running 18 months, it tries to cover the entire city, yet it has three recorded crashes on this road. That’s a sign of a dangerous road.

These are the hits, not the misses, and only those that B.T. get emailed. What else happens there, we don’t know. But we know this: if it’s not safe to drive down, it can’t be safe to cross.
