Fatalities Per Year

WHAT:

The Fatalities Per Year metric measures the number of fatalities (deaths) occurring as a result of motor vehicle crashes on Ohio’s state and local transportation system.


HOW:

The number of fatalities for the current calendar year is totaled, with the target being below the stated goal, which is a 1% reduction of fatalities from the average of five previous years.

WHEN:

Nationally, crash data is reported by all states to the federal government each calendar year. There is approximately a three to four month lag on the crash data from the time the crash occurs until the time ODOT has the information in our database to report on it. The fatalities data is reported monthly to track the agency’s progress toward its annual goal, and the total for
the calendar year is published in the CSF Dashboard.

WHERE:

Motor vehicle crash data is collected by law enforcement agencies such as the Highway Patrol and County Sheriffs. The crash reports are sent to the Ohio Department of Public Safety and made available to ODOT.

WHO:

The Office of Systems Planning & Program Management in Central Office is responsible for collecting, organizing and disseminating the Fatalities Per Year metric.

Serious Injuries per Year 

WHAT:

The Serious Injuries Per Year (ODOT System) metric measures the number of serious injuries occurring as a result of motor vehicle crashes on Ohio’s state and local transportation system. A serious injury is defined as any injury which prevents the injured person from walking, driving or normally continuing the activities the person was capable of performing before the crash occurred. This is often defined as “needing help from the scene.”


HOW:

The number of serious injuries for the current calendar year is totaled, with the target being below the stated goal, which is a 1% reduction of serious injuries from the average of five previous years.
 

WHEN:

Nationally, crash data is reported by all states to the federal government each calendar year. There is approximately a three to four month lag on the crash data from the time the crash occurs until the time ODOT has the information in our database to report on it. The injury data is reported monthly to track the agency’s progress toward its annual goal, and the total for the
