Accident Black Spots on Google Maps
CrashMap is a Google Map of all UK car crashes for the last six years.
CrashMap uses data collected by the police about road traffic crashes occurring on British roads where someone is injured. Incidents are plotted to within 10 metres of their location. The map therefore provides a great guide to accident black spots.
It is possible to search the map by location and to refine the results to show just fatal, serious or slight incidents or the results for a single year. To view details about individual car crashes users have to register and buy credits (urgh!).
