How Safe Is Your Commute?

Have you ever wondered how dangerous the roads are that you travel on each day? Well now you can visit type in your address and see just how many traffic fatalities occur in your neighborhood. "combines information from the Fatality Analysis Reporting System with Google Maps to give you a visual representation of traffic safety across the entire nation."

I found out that a 17 year old girl was struck and killed by a car less than a mile from my house as well as a 51 year old male bicyclist! Bummer...

The site is incredibly thorough and has links to news report videos of many crashes, and detailed police reports of each incident.
