In this country, every day 90 million people die. Roughly. Hmmm, actually, maybe you shouldn't quote that. Keeping you from being 90 million and one, Crime Maps.
Just launched in beta, CM is essentially an online Bat-Signal that keeps track of real-time crime statistics in your city/ town, offering stupidly simple ways to avoid areas with high rates of crime by displaying the last 12 days of crime trends, types, locations, and the safe havens riddled throughout. Some of the best ways to
make like a bandwagon Miami fan and follow the heat:
The Heatmap Color coded in true American stoplight fashion, green to red (green being "go there, as there's little to no crime", red being "AHHHH, RUN FOR YOUR LIFE! YOU'RE GOING TO DIEEEE!!!"...60+ crimes reported), the map displays recent amounts of crime, and is customizable into categories like theft, assault, shooting, and even "other", because the worst crime of all is working in the motor pool just because Ben Linus tells you to.
The Most Dangerous Intersections Warning you where to roll up your windows/ roll down your windows to buy illegal things, the map lists the top five dangerous intersections along with the number of crimes committed, currently led by Plaza Bonita Rd & Sweetwater, but closely followed by 11th & Broadway, which's sure to remain high on the list as long as the Hamburglar remains at large. Oh, and if dudes keep stealing cars.
The Crime Trends Graph This continually updated bar graph is viewable by the day or hour, and indicates that, according to the last two weeks, the most dangerous time to be out in SD is on at Thursday at 9p, most likely due to all the cougar attacks reported at En Fuego.
