Ohio Fatal Traffic Crash Map for 2005 in Google Earth

Ohio Traffic Fatalities 2005 in Google EarthThe Ohio State Highway Patrol has just released a well done, and dramatic, collection of placemarks showing the locations and details of fatal traffic accidents in the state during 2005. The number of fatal crashes is stunning. Download the Ohio fatal traffic accidents collection now. They have used icons to represent whether the fatality was in a car, motorcycle, alcohol related, or commercial. Each placemark contains details on number of fatalities, location, type, alcohol involved, and the cause. You can zoom in and see the actual location in the satellite/aerial photos in GE, and turn on the roads layer to see better where each happened.

"It is imperative that motorists are educated about traffic safety and understand the dangers on Ohio's roadways," Colonel Paul McClellan, Patrol superintendent said. "Providing accurate and detailed information utilizing Google Earth will help to inform troopers as well as the public about these problem areas."

It seems quite a few people just drive off the road in rural areas and alcohol is not even involved. The other strong point clearly illustrated is that drinking and driving really is dangerous.

    Good work from Ohio's officials. However it's always sad to see that USA is pretty much the last country on Earth where drinking and driving is NOT deemed as socially unacceptable behaviour.
