Utilization of Crash and Medical Data to Reduce Motor Vehicle Crash Severity: Findings Report




One of the ways Massachusetts develops and improves policies and procedures for expanding traffic safety is through comprehensive analysis of accurate and complete crash data. UMassSafe has investigated improved data linkage processes and strategies for linking highway safety data — crash, emergency medical services EMS, roadway inventory, and citation — in order to improve the completeness as well as accessibility, integration, accuracy, and uniformity of Massachusetts crash data. The project was funded by the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security/Office of Grants and Research/Highway Safety Division, and its Traffic Records Coordinating Committee, with Section 405-c funding from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
