About this Dataroom
This dataset contains Insurance Company of British Columbia (ICBC) accident data. Specifically it provides the location of all accidents that involved a bicycle and a ICBC insured vehicles.
All ICBC reports are self reported reports.
Data includes crashes in parking lots and crashes involving parked vehicles.
Geocoded Crashes vs. Non-Geocoded Crashes
If a claimant provides the "street on" and closest "cross street", the latitude/longitude location of the incident can be determined. However, if the location is not provided or the location is ambitious, the latitude/location of the incident cannot be determined, therefor only a city name is provided.
Geocoding incidents (intersections and Mid-Block)
All crashes "snap" to an intersection or "snap" to mid-block. Therefore, regardless of the length of a block, all incidents that were not snapped to either intersection on either end, are considered "mid-block." This means that for every block, incidents are geocoded to one of three points only.

Hi Anthony, that's a really nice map. Did you hear about the opendata hackathon - or interested in coming out to open data hacking events in Vancouver?

ICBC will have similar data for the other types of data you mentioned. They don't have an open data portal (sadly) but you can write them and request the data (that's what I did). I'm sure you can ask for data prior to 2006 as well - I just asked for 5 years worth of data.
I've got a pretty good in there so can ask for more, or can try to connect with the right people.
