The Virginia DMV recently unveiled an interactive crash locations map.
The accident map can be filtered by type, cause and severity throughout an entire locality, or down to a single street anywhere in the Commonwealth.
“Educating drivers is an important part of crash prevention,” DMV Commisioner Richard D. Holcomb said in a press release. “This new feature allows Virginians to see where crashes occur most in their neighborhoods and the factors causing those crashes. With this information, you might use extra caution when traveling through a particular intersection or remind a new driver of the hazards of driving at an unsafe speed on a road near your home where speed-related crashes happen regularly.”
