Ten Years of Traffic Accidents Mapped
Mapping Ten Years of Fatal Traffic Accidents is an interactive map showing every single fatal traffic accident in the United States from 2004 to 2013.
When zoomed out the map presents a heatmap view showing the locations where the most fatal traffic accidents have occurred. When you zoom in on the map markers appear showing the location of each individual fatal accident. This means that you can zoom on any city or town in the USA to view a detailed map of where accidents occurred locally.
When you zoom in on the map option controls also appear which allow you to filter the accidents shown by contributing factors (alcohol, speeding and driver distraction). The markers are also colored on the map to show who was killed in each accident (driver, passenger, pedestrian etc).
