National Road Safety Week 2018 — Queensland Road Crash Statistics

Tableau visualisation of Queensland Road Crash Locations

With the past week (30 April — 6 May 2018) being National Road Safety Week 2018, I have developed an interactive data visualisation of the Queensland open dataset ‘Road Crash Locations’. Link below.

At a Statewide level, the dataset from 2001 to 2017 shows some interesting (and alarming) insights — ones that everyone can keep in mind when they’re on the road (or choosing when to be). These include:

  • March is historically our worst month for casualties. This is often around our Easter school holidays.

The interactive data viz can also be filtered down to further highlight localised insights by area (suburb, electorate area, Police region, ABS statistical area, remoteness classification, etc), time (year, month, day of week), road speed limit, crash severity, nature, and type.
