Since 2011 CrashMap has provided the most authoritative, up to date and comprehensive searchable map for anyone interested in road safety data.
With over 12,000 registered users and an average of over 600 searches per day CrashMap is providing valuable information for a wide variety of stakeholders who benefit from the easy to use search function and detailed reporting functions that CrashMap provides. It is rapidly becoming the go-to resource for local media organisations and journalists who want to understand collision histories on local roads.
Stroud Life Editor and former Gloucester Citizen chief reporter Ben Falconer uses Crashmap to give valuable perspective on road safety stories.
CrashMap was originally conceived to allow concerned residents, parish councils, legal representatives, building developers and local authorities to access important collision data for nothing more than a modest click charge. Using a robust data architecture, official government data streams, familiar mapping tools & simple payment interface, this puts the power of public data in the hands of the masses. Additionally, CrashMap has offered free access to the full reports for charitable organisations working in road safety as part of its commitment to improve safety for all.
Julie Townsend, deputy chief executive of Brake, the road safety charity, said: “CrashMap is an incredibly useful tool for communities and organisations working to prevent devastating casualties and make our roads safer for everyone. Brake supports communities campaigning for safer roads, so we know how important it is they can access information on the crash history of their area. CrashMap is an easy-to-use tool for seeing where and how many people have been hurt or lost lives.”
CrashMap was awarded a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2013.
