Traffic fatalities continue to rise in urban areas. We built a model that can identify which high risk areas the city should focus its traffic safety efforts on. Learn how we worked with various open datasets from multiple transport stakeholders and directly with city government in Washington, DC. We share success and failures of our approach, with the ultimate goal to speed up solving common urban issues across the globe by distributing (open) data-driven local solutions as open source tools.
