Researchers at UC Berkeley's Safe Transportation Research and Education Center (SafeTREC) launched a new tool, the Transportation Injury Mapping System (TIMS), earlier this month that allows anyone with access to the Internet to gather information about some 130,000 serious and fatal crashes in the state. 

“This tool is meant to provide professionals and the general public with data to identify traffic safety problems and potential solutions,” said John Bigham, lead researcher for the TIMS project and the Geographic Information Systems program manager at SafeTREC. The center is based at the School of Public Health and the Institute of Transportation Studies.
