Data exploration is the search for interesting questions. Here's a few, based on the collision data alone, that we want to answer in upcoming analyses:
Many of the locations where collisions occurred in 2015 had multiple accidents — some as high as 20, in the case of Imperial Highway and Vista Del Mar. We've compiled some lists of the worst intersections for collisions, pedestrian injury and hit and runs below.
Here's a map of the most dangerous intersections:
And in ranked order:
Subset by Pedestrian Injuries:
And, by hit and runs:
We'll be building out interactive maps as part of our work. As an example, here's the cumulative growth of alcohol related incidents this year:
We'd love to hear your questions and comments as we work towards the overarching goal of Vision Zero: to identify and implement interventions most likely to save lives. There's many directions we can go in and we'd love requests and suggestions as to which angles we should pursue. We're also interested in collaborating and welcome interest from coders, designers, statisticians and all data enthusiasts.
