In 2012, the San Francisco Municipal Transit Agency (SFMTA) analyzed police data about traffic collisions in San Francisco. The agency identified the five most common causes of collisions and injuries:

The San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) commits to issuing at least half of traffic citations for these five violations. Focusing enforcement on these issues helps prevent collisions and supports the City’s “Vision Zero” goal to end traffic fatalities by 2024.

The chart below shows the citations issued for these causes in each police district. It also shows these citations as a percent of all traffic citations.

Use the buttons at the top of the chart to see the total number of "Focus on the Five" citations or percent of those citations out of all traffic citations. Use the filter pane on the right of the chart to select specific police district stations or a group of stations. 

Data note: The percentage of citations for the top five causes of collisions is calculated as a share of traffic citations. Before September 2016, this calculation was as a percentage of all citations.
