RoadDeaths.ie Looking For New Owner

Update August 6th 2012: After four years, the site has a new owner (Mark), a new plan and is now available at RoadDeaths.ie, providing information on road deaths in Ireland and road safety.

John is closing the door on RoadDeaths.ie, a great mapping project which ran between 2006 and 2007 but hasn’t seen updates in the last nine months or so.

I had offered in the past to carry the ball but my time constraints are just as bad.

The site detailed fatal traffic collision reports for 2006 and into 2007, plotting each accident on a map of the country.

This would be a great project for someone interesting in road deaths in Ireland, mapping, or someone with a desire to improve the facilities already in place. If you’re interested in the project, see the Jaiku note here or visit John’s blog to contact him.
