A new interactive map from Metrocosm depicts each of the 373,377 deaths on U.S. roads from 2004 and 2013.
Zoom into Oahu and you’ll see those deaths includes hundreds of pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers in Honolulu.
The map also shows you the contributing factors of alcohol, speeding and distracted driving.
At least one male bicyclist died on South King Street, where a new protected bike lane has inspired a lot of controversy.
Distracted driving was a common factor contributing to pedestrian deaths on the south shore of Oahu.
On Maui, alcohol was a major contributing factor in numerous deaths.
On the Big Island, speeding seems like a bigger problem.
