California: New interactive Kern County website puts street safety data at your fingertips (War on Cars Watch)

Created by researchers at UC Berkeley’s Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC), Street Story allows anyone in California to make note of dangerous conditions, accidents or near misses they encounter on their streets, be they between cars, bicyclists, pedestrians or people riding transit.

The researchers hope the site will be a valuable resource for any road user in California to provide input on road safety issues, as well as a way for local governments to get feedback on street safety. They believe it will empower residents to become more involved in the state of their roadways.
