I was born and raised in a calm and mostly residential district of the northern suburbs of Athens called “Vrilissia”. However, this calmness is often interrupted by car crashes in the streets. And when I say often, I mean that as a kid, I remember periods of time that car accidents were happening on a daily basis. So I tried to collect data about car accidents in Vrilissia, analyze them, try to interpret them and if possible try to predict the severity of a car accident that may happen in future time.
