1. A computer-implemented method to facilitate driver education, the method comprising:
analyzing, via one or more processors, auto insurance claim data to identify one or more hazardous areas, the one or more hazardous areas being defined, at least in part, by GPS location or GPS coordinates, and associated with (1) an abnormally high amount of vehicle collisions, and/or (2) an abnormally high amount of vehicle collisions causing at least one of (i) vehicle damage in excess of a predetermined amount of vehicle damage, or (ii) personal injuries in excess of a predetermined amount of medical expenses or services; and
displaying, on a driver education virtual simulator, via the one or more processors, a virtual reconstruction of a scenario including a common cause of vehicle collisions at a hazardous area from among the identified one or more hazardous areas.
 
7. A computer system comprising:
one or more processors; and
one or more memories storing computer-executable instructions that, when executed, cause the one or more processors to:
analyze auto insurance claim data to identify one or more hazardous areas, the one or more hazardous areas being defined, at least in part, by GPS location or GPS coordinates, and associated with (1) an abnormally high amount of vehicle collisions, and/or (2) an abnormally high amount of vehicle collisions causing at least one of (i) vehicle damage in excess of a predetermined amount of vehicle damage, or (ii) personal injuries in excess of a predetermined amount of medical expenses or services; and
displaying, on a driver education virtual simulator, via the one or more processors, a virtual reconstruction of a scenario including a common cause of vehicle collisions at a hazardous area from among the identified one or more hazardous areas.
 
13. A computer-implemented method comprising:
analyzing, via one or more processors, auto insurance claim data to identify one or more hazardous areas, the one or more hazardous areas being defined, at least in part, by GPS location or GPS coordinates, and associated with an abnormally high amount of vehicle collisions; and
displaying, on a driver education virtual simulator, via the one or more processors, a virtual reconstruction of a scenario including a common cause of vehicle collisions at a hazardous area from among the identified one or more hazardous areas.
