CMV Crash Location Mapping

06/11/2016

The Massachusetts Commercial Motor Vehicle Crash Map is an interactive tool that allows users to identify trends and pinpoint crash information involving commercial motor vehicles (CMV) across the state. A colored marker representing each CMV crash can be clicked to display detailed information on the crash, the vehicle, and the quality of the data for that particular case. This mapping tool will enable police officers to pinpoint locations with a high incidence of CMV crashes so they will be able to better target law enforcement efforts in these areas. In addition, it provides information concerning crash report timeliness, which allows the Massachusetts State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Section (MSP CVES) to identify police departments with inconsistent report submittal timeliness and then guide or train departments to properly complete the truck and bus section of the crash report. This will grant MSP the ability to improve CMV crash data quality while targeting high-incidence CMV crash locations.
