Transportation Alternatives: Crash Maps

New York's bicycle, pedestrian and transit advocacy group Transportation Alternatives (TA) unveiled the future of bicycle and pedestrian advocacy. Crashstats (A play on NYPD's CrimeStats crime mapping program) combine bicycle and pedestrian crash statistics and GIS mapped to the neighborhood level. TA wants Crashstats to be a tool for neighborhoods, media and elected officials to work towards improving pedestrian and bicycle safety throughout New York City.
