Brooklyn's Cheery Map of Traffic-Related Deaths

This cheery and colorful map (as seen on Brownstoner) shows many of the traffic-related deaths that occurred in Brooklyn over an eight-year period.

The original can be found on ITO World, which says, "Use this site to view information about virtually every fatality that occurred on roads in the United States as a result of a collision involving a motor vehicle between between 1 January 2001 and 31 December 2009. For each incident you will be able to see the person's age, sex and the year in which the crash took place."

Commenters on Brownstoner, however, have discovered that several fatal accidents they are familiar with are not on the map: "Recall the two young boys who were killed in '04 at the intersection of 9th St and 3rd Ave? Not on there." and "The ones at Eastern Parkway and Washington are missing, too."
