Avoid Accident Hot Spots with the Click of the Mouse

Comments Off

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have created SafeRoadMaps, which gives motorists detailed information about dangerous roads and sites where the most auto accidents have occurred in the United States using data from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System. Users can enter an address to find out the details of fatal accidents in a particular area. A “Heat Map” gives quick overview of areas with high and low concentration of accidents. There is also the ability to narrow down a search to see the age of the driver, whether speeding or drinking was a factor, and if the driver was wearing a seatbelt. If you were planning a trip, you might rethink your route if you learned several accidents have occurred on a particular roadway within the last year. Parents can use the tool to help new drivers travel safer routes.

The interactive tools include:

My Travel: Allows users to instantly find accident data to search the safest route

My Community: Identifies the most dangerous roads and intersections in a particular area.

My State: Provides crash statistics for each state, including rural or urban areas.

National Maps: Lists information on year-round and summer hot spots nationwide.

Analysis and Tools: For members and provides detailed reports.

This site can help you and your loved ones stay safe on our roadways. Whether it’s a ten minute drive to school or across the country on vacation, SafeRoadMaps is a hot spot for all your travels.
