Grants and Contracts Details


The primary objective of this study is to analyze, summarize, and document crash data and related statistics for Kentucky highways. Average and critical crash numbers and rates will be calculated for various types of highways in rural and urban areas. In addition, data will be prepared in a format that can be used for the problem identification section of Kentucky’s Annual Highway Safety Plan. Among the general areas of analysis and their relationships to highway crashes will be the following; alcohol involvement, occupant protection, speed, teenage drivers, pedestrians, bicycles, motorcycles, trucks, and vehicle defects. Another product of this project will be preparation of the document titled “Traffic Collision Facts”. Included in this document are summaries and presentation of crash data obtained from the automated database (Collision Report Analysis for Safer Highways – CRASH) for all police-reported crashes in Kentucky.
