Vision Zero Los Angeles has taken a new approach to figuring out which parts of the city need new safety projects

If you live in a place long enough, you learn which roads are the most dangerous in terms of car accidents. However, a new map is hoping to make that process even easier by showing how many pedestrians and cyclists died on any given street in Los Angeles.

Vision Zero Los Angeles is a project aimed at reducing pedestrian and cyclist deaths, toward a goal of zero accidents by 2025. However, after its first full year, pedestrian deaths had increased by 43%, signaling the need for a new approach. The map is designed to bring awareness to the issue with the aid of a strong visual. The map also helps city planners figure out where new safety features and projects are most needed, as 65% of serious injuries and deaths happen on just 6% of Los Angeles streets. For those who commute through the city, the map serves yet another purpose: finding alternate routes around some of these more dangerous areas.
