Crash map updates

Looking at the Bike-Pgh crash map, I don’t see any crashes listed in over a year. Is the map broken, or are people just not getting into wrecks? Maybe both. In particular, I don’t see the August fatality on Louisa Street.

I think it would be useful to have an updated sense of where the danger zones are–maybe a filter by date option–to see if anything being done by the city (lane stripings, sharrows, etc.) is making a difference.

Also, I think the info bubbles on the map are a bit too small (requiring a new page load to get the details) and access to the map is hard to find: it’s on a tab bundled with the browsable online version of the regular bike map. What about a direct link on the “In a crash?” or safety pages?

Not to necessarily criticize the staff here–maybe (hopefully) there are just fewer crashes to report, of which fewer are getting translated onto the map.

I’ve been playing with the Google Maps API a bit lately if you need any help hacking on it.
