Police claim to be able to predict car crashes


The Indiana State Police have just invented a “Daily Crash Prediction” map. Which they claim, gives them the ability to predict automotive crashes!

I thought I’d seen it all, police using pupil dilation charts to arrest innocent people and innocent people being arrested before they commit a crime. But this is a whole new level of absurdity, predictive policing is turning our justice system upside down.  

Cops claiming to be able to predict car crashes, give me a break.

The Indiana Daily Crash Prediction map is an interactive tool that predicts where crashes are likely to occur across the state of Indiana…”

Major Michael White exclaimed, “This is a kick-ass tool!”

The ‘crash prediction map’ uses a color-coded crash risk warning system, much like DHS’s color-coded Advisory System.

White:Very Low
Green: Low
Yellow: Medium
Red: High
And a European exclamation mark inside of a triangle to signify roads are slick.

Coming to a city near you ‘predictive car crash policing’

In the near future, you can expect to see the ‘crash prediction map’ being used as an excuse to detain, question and arrest motorists.

“The map will also aid in what ISP calls “proactive policing approaches” intended to reduce crash and fatalities. Law enforcement will consult the map to strategically dispatch officers in areas with increased probabilities of a crash. In Tennessee, predictive mapping decreased average response time for first responders.”

Police admit ‘crash prediction’ is all about profits

What’s even more incredible, is how the Indiana State Police admit the ‘crash prediction map’ is really all about profits. At approximately 20 seconds into the video Ashley Schenck, reveals that crash prediction is about “driving investment and greater outcome for fiduciaries.”

It doesn’t get any plainer then that, predictive policing in all its various forms, is nothing more than a money maker for police and stakeholders. Auto insurers, would never use the crash prediction map to raise motorists rates, right?

The future of driving in America is bleak, soon motorists can expect to see State Police Bulletins like this: Motoristswill be ticketed or arrested for failure to heed daily predictive crash warnings.

Where does the lunacy end?

    Umm let me correct this line for ya , here we go

    “Major Michael White is a tool, and we exclaim to kick his ass “

  2. To predict car crashes should be a very simple process. All you’d have to do is take a road map, divide it into small regions, and overlay historical data on it showing how many crashes have occurred in each region in the past.

    In the absence of such historical data predictions could still be attempted on the basis of traffic congestion patterns, road pattern complexity, etc. But these predictions would probably be less accurate.

    Leaving aside my numerous grievances with (and outright hatred of) US police, I don’t have any objections to this tool per se. If certain stoplights, intersections, or whatever tend to see more accidents, then the problems should be fixed. That doesn’t have to mean more pigs on the roads. It could also mean new road signs, stoplights, or whatever.

  3. “… crash prediction is about “driving investment and greater outcome for fiduciaries.”


    “… nothing more than a money maker for police and stakeholders.”

    And we expect nothing less from these ICM enforcers.
