This image of every road death in the UK is painfully pretty

This beautiful BBC image isn't a photo taken from the space station. It's actually a composite showing the location of 2,396,750 road crashes in Great Britain from 1999 to 2010.

It's rarer than hen's teeth and more rotten than a pear sitting in the owner's orchard, but that is only the beginning of the amusing description that accompanies this 1976 Austin Ute. » 11/06/11 11:00am 11/06/11 11:00am
