Help Us Complete the Streetsblog Traffic Fatality Database

Streetsblog is looking for someone to help bring our traffic fatality database up to date.

In 2012 we began logging all reported pedestrian and cyclist deaths into a Google Docs spreadsheet.

Interested? Contact Brad at brad.streetsblog@gmail.com.
