Statistics

A cornerstone of any Vision Zero approach is safety data.  Data was used to identify what type and how many crashes are occurring, who is impacted by crashes, as well as where and when crashes are occurring.

The data analysis for the Martin Vision Zero Action Plan can be found at this link.

The charts and map below provide a quick snapshot of traffic safety trends in Martin County.  The methodology for the crash analysis utilized crash data extracted from the FDOT Crash Analysis Reporting System (CARS).  Data were extracted for all crashes in Martin County from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2018. The date ranges are selected to align with the MPO and County fiscal years.

Additionally, the crash analysis excludes crashes that occurred on I-95 and Florida’s Turnpike.  The MPO and Martin County do not have policy control over these interstates and so are excluded from the analysis. 

Serious injury and fatal crashes are higher for every mode in 2017 than in 2013, with the exception of motorcycles which are down slightly below 2013 levels.

8,233 crashes occured in Martin County from 2013 to 2017.

351 crashes involved a fatality or serious injury between 2013 to 2017.
