Improving Cycling Safety with Google Maps
The Times newspaper is running a campaign in the UK to make Cities Fit For Cycling. As part of that campaign the Times are asking its readers to add unsafe cycling roads to the Make Britain #cyclesafe Google Map.
So far the map has had over 5,000 submissions. When users are zoomed out on the map they can view a heatmap of where the most submission have been made. If users zoom in they can view the individual submissions as map markers.
To submit an unsafe road or area that you think needs improvements to make cycling safer you need to zoom right in on the location and then double-click on the map.
