A month of
New York Traffic
There's more than 20 000 motor vehicle accidents in New York every month, leaving a dozen dead and over 2000 injured.
That's around an accident every 30 seconds, and one every 600 yards of road. In 10 years, once most vehicles are autonomous, we'll look back at this time as utter madness. I wanted to take a snapshop of this and use the data to create something beautiful to jutapose these underlying horific statistics.
The twirls represent resonance - the fact that these accidents are not just moments in time, but have much further reaching effects for people and families beyond just that moment.
However, I also didn't want to trivilize the data for beauty's sake, so there's an number of other visualisations included to explore and interact with.
