Strategic Highway Safety Plan Data Analysis

Ohio has identified five Emphasis Areas for improving safety:

  • Improving the quality, accuracy, timeliness and availability of crash data
  • Reducing the occurrence and severity of run-off-road, intersections and head-on collisions
  • Addressing high-risk drivers between the ages of 15 and 24, and high-risk behaviors such as impaired driving, low seatbelt use, texting and excessive speed
  • Targeting motorcycle and bicycle riders, pedestrians and commercial vehicles, which are more likely to be involved in serious crashes
  • Reducing the high number of rear-end collisions caused by congestion

 

ODOT has created County Fact Sheets that can be used to develop strategies involving engineering, education, enforcement and emergency response.

The following tables display crash data for each Emphasis Area and compare the data over time. This gives safety organizations information they can use to track crash trends and develop stategies.

2002-2012 SHSP Monthly Emphasis Area Tracker - Serious Injuries.pdf
  

The SHSP table below illustrates the overlapping causes of crashes and the need for a multi-discipline approach that involves engineering, education, enforcement and emergency response.

The chart plots all the Emphasis Areas in the Strategic Highway Safety Plan. Areas of yellow, orange and red show a stronger relationship between the crash types.

Example:  In the top, left-hand corner, you will see that between 2006 and 2010, Ohio had 2,197 Roadway Departure fatalities where a driver left the road and hit an object, such as a tree or utility pole. As you move across the top row to the right, you will conclude that many of the roadway departure fatalities also involved excessive speed, alcohol and unbelted drivers and passengers.  This information demonstrates the need to pool our resources across safety disciplines.
