BBC inter active software charts transport fatalities

Christmas and New Year is always a dangerous time on the roads and this latest piece of interactive software via the BBC attempts to give you the license payer an incite in where not to drive.

It charts the years 1999 to 2008 using figures from the department of transport but only for those incidents where there was at least one fatality.

You can enter a postcode or police area to search.

I plugged in Greater Manchester which shows deaths in 2008 as 2,538,back at the start of the data it was 3,423 with the worst year 2003 with 3,508 deaths.

Click on the pointers and it will give the date,the fatality and the vehicles involved
