Getting graphic with traffic fatalities
support for all things MyWHaT is appreciated.
John Nelson created a graphic depicting 5 years of traffic fatalities in the United States broken down by month and time of day. The portion of the larger graphic shown below shows fatalities involving pedestrians. Obviously, it clearly shows that the majority of fatalities between people in cars and people on foot occur at dusk when are more likely to be out and visibility decreases.
A good reminder about why reflective material needs to be mandatory for dark automobiles. (Copen)
Traffic Fatalities Involving Pedestrians
In the graphic, Nelson also depicts total fatalities and those that involve alcohol or weather. The above shows the breakdown by month, but he also depicts fatalities by the day of the week. Careful, it looks like Wednesday morning’s are particularly dangerous.
And, if you need a reminder to stay away from Florida:
Update and Correction:
An update from the planning commission meeting last night. In yesterday’s post, I made a rookie mistake and over-looked that the process requires the PC to first determine if the conditional rezoning offer is sufficiently ready for a public hearing. That was confirmed last night and the public hearing for the TBA Credit Union conditional rezoning offer is set for February 5, 2013. Between now and then the concept plan and TBA’s offer may or may not change from last night’s packet. As the public hearing approaches more information will be available.
