Default Fatality Map

I found this nice map:

http://map.itoworld.com/road-casualties-usa#

that shows vehicle fatalities (motorcycle in yellow) across the United States. Check out your area. Funny that, in my area, many of the intersections I consider dangerous have a fatality. One more reason to be extra alert when crossing (or, if feasible, avoid) those intersections.

It's easy to find the "Tail of the Dragon." What's scary is that the map just shows fatalities. Injuries are far more common.

All my favorite twisty mountain roads are pretty clear. I hope to not add a data point myself! I'm not saying those roads, by themselves are any safer, but I am trying to say that the data at least means I am less likely to encounter an idiot that could low-side and take me out on the other roads I like that are just as nice (or nicer). One more reason to avoid the tail or to experience it during off-peak times.
