Road Safety Website

Dangerous Roads was inspired by a near miss incident experienced by the client. 

Dangerous Roads Road Event DisplayDangerousroads.org was a place where visitors could read about, and users can enter, stories about dangerous roads in the United States.

The site was powered by WikyBlog a hybrid web application described as “not exactly a wiki, not exactly a blog.” by its developer,  Josh Schmidt.

When researching solutions for this project I was immediately impressed by WikyBlogs’  Google Maps integration features as used on the gaboons.com website.

On gaboons.com, users are able to add ‘posts’ about road race events and also edit and incorporate a Google Map associated with the event.

For dangerousroads.org,  Josh made this integration a little easier for the average visitor by making the live Google map automatically created by the event address entered by the user. The event map then magically appears on the same page as the users post about their dangerous road. Fabulous!
