Safety Analysis

Safety Analysis and Reporting

MRCOG obtains and analyzes crash data to assist member agencies and the public with understanding crash information and transportation planning issues confronting the AMPA region. This task results in a number of processes and products on safety issues, the analysis for different studies and Metropolitan Transportation Plan implementation, and the development of projects for the Transportation Improvement Program.

Regional Transportation Safety Action Plan

MRMPO is currently working on a Regional Transportation Safety Action Plan (RTSAP) that analyzes crash data from 2011 to 2015. This plan focuses on fatalities and injuries, and includes crash statistics for walking, biking, motor vehicle, and motorcycle travel. This safety plan is more extensive than previous crash reports, and includes expanded data analysis as well as specific action items to help the region improve our roadway safety.

For more information on this plan please see the following documents:

For information on the roadway safety plan in progress please contact Caeri Thomas at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Staff is available to present to your organization or group, and the final draft plan will soon be available for public review.

New Mexico and the City of Albuquerque have been identified as a Focus State/Focus City by the Federal Highway Administration because of high pedestrian and bicycle fatalities. To learn more about this focused approach please visit this site:

The latest crash data that is available is from 2016, and was recently received from the UNM Geospatial Population Studies department who contracts with the New Mexico Department of Transportation Traffic Safety Bureau to geo-locate crash data for our region.

Current Crash and Safety Report

MRMPO has completed the Regional Traffic Safety Report for the years 2009-2013. This updated report is provided in a new format as a story map which will allow people reading the report to zoom into any one of a series of maps and click on locations of interest to see underlying information. This report provides an overall view of crashes in the Albuquerque Metropolitan Planning Area. Some highlight include intersection crash rates, pedestrian crash density, alcohol/drug involvement crash statistics, and age and gender breakdowns.
