Following its analysis of UK casualties last week, transport data mapping experts ITO World have taken the official data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration – and produced this powerful map using OpenStreetMap.

    The video of should be taken off the internet imediately! I have contacted Secretary Prasad on this matter. If anyone has had a child get killed walking across the street and sees this morbid website it brings back the hurt all over. How insensitive of FDOT to allow such a sick video! That doesnt save lives. Maybe changing FDOT guidelines 18 years ago would have saved my fiances’ life as he walked my son (then 12) across Michigan Ave) which my son witness Steve Busbee getting hit. Shame on you FDOT. Parents everywhere should get a public apology ASAP
