I'm looking for something that would give statistics on my daily commute.
A friend of mine is thinking about leaving their job because the daily driving commute is too dangerous. Nearly got into two major accidents in the first two weeks.
What would be interesting is to investigate different times of travel, maybe reroute suggestions, based on different times of the year etc. lots of ideas but nothing comes to mind except tell the friend to go with their gut.
And yes "drive slower" has been offered as a suggestion. It would be interesting to know what lanes could be more dangerous too.
I'm looking for any ideas to help in this real life scenario. Would be interesting to see what kind of data is out there and how you could get it on a specific driving route.
There's lots of stats on accidents but not a tool that I know of to help you make a safer commute/pick a job with a safe commute. Maybe this tool is achievable with the right data set.
Chicago is a region of particular interest.
