NJ Car Crashes Visualized

From 2001 to 2014, 9,058 people were killed and 1,386,636 people injured in 4,062,688 car accidents in NJ, that is, on average, 647 people killed and 99,045 people injured per year. We hope that these maps will spur policies and infrastructure improvements that reduce these deaths and injuries.

Explore crashes involving only motorized vehicles on this interactive car crash map. Data from NJ-DOT (2001-2014).

Car-on-car crashes have a slightly different distribution than car-on-bike crashes, but problem corridors are the same for both. Using both maps can help towns prioritize the implementation of their Complete Streets policy.
