Mapping Every Road Casualty Across America

Between 2001 and 2009, nearly 370,000 people died on U.S. roads, and an interactive map from ITO World – using official data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration – lets users dial down and view each and every one. Each dot -- in blue, green, orange, purple and black -- represents a life lost, and details age, year of crash, male or female, and whether multiple persons were killed.
