The MRCOG Roadway Safety and Crash Report visualizes five years of NMDOT crash data (2015-2019) for the MRCOG region. This crash report uses online interactive charts and maps to provide the user with a better way to visualize the data and display certain crash factors that are of interest to them. This is an enhancement from previous reports because it allows for more customizable information. For example, if the user would like to look at a map of fatal crashes where speeding was the top contributing factor, that selection can be made in the “What are the Top Contributing Factors” tab. Each tab presented in this report focuses on different elements of the crash data such as where dangerous crashes happen, when crashes tend to happen, what contributing factors lead to crashes, and who is most at risk in traffic crashes.
The MRCOG Roadway Safety and Crash Report (2015-2019) does not prescribe safety countermeasures; those can still be found in the Regional Transportation Safety Action Plan (RTSAP). However, this report does update safety maps that have been published by MRCOG in the recent years, such as the High Fatality and Injury Network (HFIN). This crash report also introduces a new analysis of how crashes impact vulnerable communities. The intent of the new crash report is to help the public and local agencies and other stakeholders better understand safety issues in our region.
