Documenting the Characteristics of Traffic Crashes for RITI Communities in Idaho

The primary goal of this project is to document the characteristics of traffic crashes in rural, isolated, tribal, or indigenous (RITI) communities in Idaho. The long-term vision of the PIs in this project is to establish an in-depth understanding of the baseline traffic safety conditions in RITI communities as a first step towards the ultimate goal of improving safety for these underserved groups through research, education, and outreach activities. The project has the following three objectives: 1) Identify and document different sources of crash data for RITI communities in Idaho; 2) Conduct an in-depth five-year crash analysis (2012-2016) to document the characteristics of traffic crashes in RITI communities using the Idaho Transportation Department’s (ITD) WebCars crash data tool; and 3) Identify and document different sources for traffic exposure data (vehicle-miles-traveled) for RITI communities in Idaho.
