600 entries made to Active Travel Collision Tracker in 15 days

News in brief: The national Active Travel Collision Tracker at Collisiontracker.ie, launched 15 days ago and has received over 600 entries.

The entries by users include older collisions, mainly involving deaths, dating back as far as 2001.

...I'm sorry to disrupt you while you're reading this article, but without messages like this, IrishCycle.com's reader-funded journalism won't survive. With nearly 1/2 million views and 300k readers so-far this year, it's not just people who are dedicated to cycling that this website reaches. However, the number of subscribers is around 0.6% of readers. While having a large gap between readers/subscribers is standard for non-paywall reader-supported journalism, IrishCycle's journalism needs more support. Don't delay, support monthly or yearly today. Now, back to the article...

The tracker entries include everything from those fatal collisions to close passes and risks like potholes.

The idea of mapping out incidents and issues is that patterns will form, which will allow IrishCycle.com, Dublin Inquirer, and Tripe + Drisheen — three reader-funded media outlets — will to be able to report on such problem areas.

Correction: This article originally said the tracker was online for longer, apologies for any confusion.

...That's the end of the article. Keep scrolling if you want to the comments, but IrishCycle.com *NEEDS* readers like you to keep it that way. It only requires a small percentage of readers to give a bit each month or every year to keep IrishCycle.com's journalism open to all. Thank you.
