The London Collision Map
Transport for London has released a new interactive map showing the location of all traffic collisions reported to the police in London since 2005. The London Collision Map visualizes when and where collisions occurred in London over the last decade and the severity of each traffic accident.
It is possible to filter the results by year, vehicle, collision severity and by age group. When zoomed out the map presents a choropleth view of the number of traffic collisions in each London borough. If you use the timeline beneath the map to change the year you can can get a quick overview of whether road safety in each borough is improving or deteriorating over time.
When you zoom in on the map the individual collisions appear on the map. If you select a marked collision on the map you can view the details of the accident, including the date and time of the accident, the type of vehicles involved and details about any injuries.
