A Different Kind of Justice: Tracking Traffic Deaths

When I’m not working on stories about the courts, I work at WNYC Radio, covering transportation. Particularly traffic deaths, something that’s surprisingly hard to track. Incidentally, they’re also rarely prosecuted, but that’s another post.

I’ve been monitoring and hunting down the reported (and unreported) fatalities, and luckily, I have the great pleasure of working with the station’s stellar data news team. Together we built a tool to keep track of all the people killed by cars in New York City this year.

Here’s the story on the tracker launch, and the tracker itself is, well, right here.
