Holmes Avenue Crash Numbers

The road diet restricting Holmes Avenue to two lanes between 17th and Northgate has been in effect for one year and here are the crash statistics:

While traffic crashes have fallen city-wide compared to last year, the number and intensity of crashes on Holmes Avenue has decreased faster.  Because of the tight margin, I’m not willing to call it a trend, but I like what I see. 
Holmes Avenue crashes decreased 25.6% compared to a city-wide crash decrease of 20.4%.  Similarly, Holmes Avenue injuries decreased 25.9% compared to a city-wide decrease of 23.4%.
