My SO and I have been having a lot of conversations about Fatal Crashes in South Africa. It is a very popular issue to discuss in South Africa especially during the festive season. To start answering some of the questions about the impact of the government and law enforcement on reducing the crashes, we first have to gather the data and start looking at it. To that end I jumped into reports from RTMC. I have made available a simple dataset of Fatal Crashes per South African province available. Here is a plot with the top 7 provinces
