Are you looking for the latest traffic safety data trends in Colorado? Here are two new sources of information.

NHTSA has published new data visualizations and graphics for Colorado crashes. Graphics have been created for motorcycles, children, bicyclists and pedestrians.  This portal presents interactive visualizations that focus on several highway safety topics of interest. These visualizations include multiple dashboards with information on fatal motor vehicle traffic crashes and fatalities based on data from NHTSA's Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), which contains data on every fatal traffic crash in the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

CDOT Traffic Safety & Engineering Services is developing performance dashboards to better understand numbers, causes, types, and locations of crashes in order to develop effective countermeasures and meet performance targets.
