BBC maps every accident in Great Britain in last 12 years
The BBC compiled a large amount of information to go with it, including an in-depth breakdown of the numbers: in those 12 years, more than 36,000 dead – 1,850, or five a day, in 2010 – more than three million injured and more than £15 billion in economic cost.
It goes even further than that, with extra features on things like crash-proof cars, a full day of tweeting from two BBC reporters who spend a day with a London ambulance crew, and time-laps video of when and where accidents happen. So, for any Britons who want to see where and how people are getting hurt on the roads, or for those of you who are just interested in such things, follow the link.
