CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The City of Cincinnati is launching a city-wide online survey that allows residents to pinpoint on pedestrian problem areas on a map.

The Department of Transportation & Engineering will use the survey responses to help determine future safety improvements that could be made to keep you safe on the streets.

"As a crowd-sourcing tool, the Pedestrian Safety Survey will help us gauge the magnitude of a specific concern," Michael Moore, director of DOTE, said in a news release. "We will use the feedback to prioritize safety improvements in our neighborhoods."

The interactive map lets you report the following issues:

  • Walk signal is too short
  • Long wait for walk signal
  • Jaywalking
  • Vehicles run red lights or stop signs
  • Speeding
  • Double Parking
  • Parking too close to intersection
  • Vehicles do not yield at crosswalks
  • Lack of Visibility
  • No Sidewalks
  • No Bike Facilities
  • Parking on the sidewalk
  • Crosswalk Needed
  • Accessibility issue
  • Other

The Pedestrian Safety Survey is easy to use. There is a drop-down menu of neighborhoods you can choose from, then identify a particular street and add your concern or comment.

Survey submissions are anonymous.

The survey will run through April 20, 2018.
