REGIONAL CRASH DATA
To help better understand the safety issues facing our region, on an annual basis MORPC analyzes regional crash data and produces the Regional Crash Fact Sheets, Local Crash Fact Sheets, and the High-Crash Locations lists. The majority of the data used is received from standardized police reports (OH-1) that are generated each time a traffic crash occurs and law enforcement responds. The Ohio Department of Public Safety is responsible for compiling, analyzing, and publishing crash statistics in the State of Ohio.
- Regional Crash Fact Sheets: Using the most current five years’ worth of crash data, the Regional Crash Fact Sheets are meant to provide a compressive picture of the transportation safety issues facing the Central Ohio region. They include in-depth analyses of various crash types and contributing factors, as well as provide insight into opportunities for reducing serious injuries and fatalities.
- Local Crash Fact Sheets: Using the most current five years’ worth of crash data, the Local Crash Fact Sheets are meant to provide a snapshot of the transportation safety issues facing Cities within the Central Ohio region. They include various crash statistics, along with information related to the top crash locations by jurisdiction.
- High-Crash Locations: Using the most current three years’ worth of crash data, MORPC analyzes locations within our Metropolitan Planning Area to identify high-crash locations. This results in the Top 100 Regional High-Crash Location list, a list of Top 5 High-Crash Intersections by Jurisdiction, as well as a list of Top Pedestrian and Bicycle High-Crash Clusters.
