Road traffic accidents map

Postby p7r » Mon Dec 05, 2011 3:13 pm

The BBC have put up an interactive map showing every accident involving a death on the roads of the UK from 1999 to 2010: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-15975720

I note that in M21 we seem to have had relatively few fatalities. Those recorded seem to mostly involve cars and pedestrians, with only one bike fatality that I can see.

I thought this might be of interest to some here, and perhaps a timely reminder given we're in the season of drink driving and icey conditions. Be careful out there...

Thanks! How refreshing to see things in perspective for a change, particularly after all the recent distortion and emotional reasoning about cyclists exclusively causing traffic problems by driving on pavements.... ;-)

Would someone else please post what I'm thinking here, because I'm probably sailing close to the wind already, what with our new moderators and all.

That is a very interesting map. Pretty sad and slightly upsetting as well.

My analysis of the Chorlton area looks like the deaths are largely along the two main roads in Chorlton and involves one of three group. a, kids, b, OAPs or c, drunk people. :(

Particularly sad was that one outside the Chorlton Leisure centre when a couple of guys came over the hump and straight into the back of a parked up lorry. I always considered that section of road dangers and thought that the stretch immediately outside the centre should have a double yellow line.

What other dangerous spots are there in Chorlton?
