TA Rolls Out CrashStat Improvements

E. 33rd St. and Park Ave. was the city’s most dangerous intersection between 1995 and 2005.

Transportation Alternatives’ CrashStat 2.0 is now out of beta, with improvements in performance and functionality.

The most obvious change is that the data loads a lot faster, and the icons are cleaner. There are more data points, too: the map now features stats by borough as well as community district. And there are icons indicating community facilities like schools and hospitals.

Originally launched in 2004, CrashStat allows users to access official data on city pedestrian- and cyclist-involved crashes from 1995 to 2005.
