Nationally, in 2009, nearly 52,000 bicyclists and other cyclists were injured or killed in motor vehicle collisions. Bicyclist deaths (630) accounted for 2 percent of all traffic fatalities nationwide. Each year, the Indiana University Center for Criminal Justice Research (CCJR) partners with the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute to analyze Indiana vehicle crash data from the Automated Reporting Information Exchange System (ARIES), maintained by the Indiana State Police. CCJR research findings are summarized in a series of annual publications on various aspects of traffic collisions. In late 2011, CCJR began assisting Bicycle Indiana in analyzing collision data and preparing an additional traffic safety report summarizing Indiana collisions involving bicycles between 2006 and 2010.
