That's a Lot of LivesA group of transport information specialists from the UK, ITO World, has taken US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and overlaid it on OpenStreetMap interactive maps to create a stark reminder of the importance of road safety. It also doesn't require a huge leap of the imagination to think that if our transportation system was greener - more mass transit, more separated bike lanes, more walkable neighborhoods - that a lot of those deaths wouldn't have occurred.
The data shows fatalities for drivers, cyclists, pedestrians, etc, between 2001 and 2009.
Best of all, they've made it available under Creative Commons licence (cc-by-sa 2.0).
"For each incident you will be able to see the person's age, sex and the year in which the crash took place. Where information is not available fields are left blank." (that's what those little colored squares show)
