Safer roads to school in Mexico City
More than a thousand pedestrians are killed by cars every year in Mexico City. It is the leading cause of death among children aged between 1 and 5. Data exists on where and when accidents are most likely to happen, but it isn’t available to be seen nor used.
The project will make the latest data available on a map which also shows school zones, allowing parents to see where extra care is needed on their children’s route to school – and giving city authorities the information they need to increase children’s safety by considering changes to the design of the most dangerous crossings. This project will also provide tools for parents to evaluate and improve school zones in order to save children’s lives
