The Cyclist Reporting of Incidents Tool (CRIT) provides cyclists with a simple and quick way of reporting the crashes and near miss incidents that they experience whilst cycling, including important information regarding the incidents themselves (e.g. time and location, incident description) and the contributory factors involved.
With users all over Australia, this information is analysed and used to identify trends in incidents and incident causation and inform the development of strategies designed to enhance cyclist safety. CRIT also presents a summary of the incidents reported to its users, allowing cyclists to understand the hazards that they face when cycling as well as trends in crash and near miss causation.
CRIT is funded through the Road Safety Innovation Fund, a scheme by the Australian Government which supports road safety research and the development of new, innovative road safety technologies and products. CRIT was developed by the Centre for Human Factors and Sociotechnical Systems at the University of the Sunshine Coast in collaboration with bizsoft consulting.
