The Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC)’s Safety Data System — to be ready by the end of 2021 — will improve cities’ and counties’ access to safety-related data and analysis tools, so they can develop tailored traffic safety plans and identify countermeasures to reduce traffic fatalities.

This flexible system will integrate information about crashes, infrastructure, equity and demographics, as well as additional data that become available over time. This integration will facilitate safety analyses that cities can use that fits with their unique priorities and challenges. Local jurisdictions will be able to access data from individual intersections to longer transportation corridors, and to identify larger regional trends.
