    Every death on every road in Great Britain 1999-2010
    Britain has one of the best records in the world for road casualties. However, hundreds still die on the roads every year. In 2010, the police recorded 1,850 deaths, 22,660 people seriously injured and 184,138 who received light injuries.
    Using official data recorded by police in Great Britain between 1999 and 2010, we have plotted every road collision in which someone died. In all, 36,371 fatalities are marked on this interactive map. You will also find partial data for Northern Ireland, for 2004-2009.

    Detailed information about each crash is recorded by the police at the scene. It is subsequently transferred onto a computer database. This is available to researchers from the Economic and Social Data Service. As with any large collection of data, there will be errors and omissions that occur in this process and some of these will be found in this map.

    We all know about these things,and it quite a sobering thought.
    Funny though we seem to forget this as we blast around the Evo.

    So i work out that we have had 6 fatalities in 13 years on our major road and the council declared it a black spot and reduced the speed limit to 40 on an open dual carridge way in the country, mind at least there shouldnt be any more fatalities just bigger que's
