Interactive crash map to be launched

Monday, June 22, 2015

KINGSTON, Jamaica –Jamaica National General Insurance (JNGI), in collaboration with the Mona Geoinformatics Institute (MGI), will on Thursday launch its interactive crash map.
The JNGI Fatal Crash Map will spatially locate and describe every fatal road accident in Jamaica from January 1, 2015 onwards.
The original study period was moved from 2000 to 2010, following the 2012 Comprehensive Crash Mapping exercise.
“The new Fatal Crash Map will provide a dynamic, interactive record of all deaths that have occurred on Jamaica’s roads going forward, an advisory from JNGI said Monday. “It will be updated on a daily basis from police records, so that stakeholders will be able to see emerging patterns, and plan corrective action.

The launch will take place at 11:00 am at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge at the University of the West Indies, Mona.

This interactive crash map is said to be the latest initiative in JNGI’s ‘Arrive Alive’ programme, which is delivered in partnership with the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, and is aimed at reducing road accidents in Jamaica.

MGI’s research had previously been used to locate ‘Crash Hot Spot’ signs in danger zones across the island.
