Hong Kong Traffic Injury Collision Database is a project co-developed by Street Reset and Hong Kong District Info, which aims to visualise Hong Kong traffic collision data with interactive mapping. The objective is three-fold:
- To alert the public on the current severity of traffic collisions in Hong Kong, with particular dire implications for pedestrians and cyclists,
- To draw attention to how street design has contributed to the current situation, and what systemic remedies should be made to enhance the safety of vulnerable road users, and
- To provide journalists, district councillors, and government departments with insights and map-based data evidence to understand this issue.
Major features of the website includes:
- Collision Location Map: An interactive map for users to explore the locations of traffic collisions, with custom filter (collision severity, date, vehicle type involved, etc.) to subset the database according to users’ specific needs
- District Dashboard: A dashboard to summarise the number of collisions and characteristics of collisions by 18 districts in Hong Kong
- Pedestrian Collision Hotzones: An interactive map showing location and information of the “pedestrian-related traffic collisions disaster area” identified using the Hotzone analysis method.
