OBJECTIVES

1. DATA IMPORTANCE ~ WHO CARES?

2. DATA USES ~ INSURANCE MYTH

3. HOT ISSUES ~ A.C.T. NOW

crimes vs crashes
CRIMES vs CRASHES

HAVE YOU BEEN IN A TRAFFIC CRASH?

HAVE YOU, OR HAS SOMEONE YOU KNOW BEEN THE VICTIM OF A SERIOUS CRIME?

crimes vs crashes10
CRIMES vs CRASHES
  • CRASH RELATED PROPERTY LOSS OFTEN EXCEEDS THE DOLLAR AMOUNTS INVOLVED IN CRIMES SUCH AS BURGLARY AND THEFT
  • ACCURATE CRASH REPORTS ARE VITAL
minor vs serious crashes
MINOR vs SERIOUS CRASHES
  • THE SEVERITY OF THE CRASH SHOULD NOT AFFECT THE IMPORTANCE OR QUALITY OF DATA

WHEN YOUR AGENCY INVESTIGATES A CRASH INVOLVING

  • 1. DEATH
  • 2. INJURY
  • 3. DAMAGE TO ANY ONE PERSON’S
  • PROPERTY EXCEEDING $500 IF ANY
  • DRIVER IS NOT INSURED, OR $1,500
  • WHEN ALL DRIVERS ARE INSURED
  • (EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2009)
  • IVC SECTION 5/11- 406(a) & 408(a)
  • See SR1050 Instruction Manual page 11
property damage threshold examples
PROPERTY DAMAGE THRESHOLD EXAMPLES
  • A 2-vehicle crash occurs causing $800 damage to one of the units. One driver is insured but the other is not; therefore, a report is required using the $501 - $1,500 threshold below.

DAMAGE TO ANY  $500 OR LESS

ONE PERSON’S  $501 - $1,500

VEHICLE/PROPERTY  OVER $1,500

property damage threshold examples23
PROPERTY DAMAGE THRESHOLD EXAMPLES

IF BOTH DRIVERS HAD BEEN INSURED AND THE DAMAGE REMAINED $800, NO REPORT WOULD BE REQUIRED. HOWEVER, IF ANY DAMAGE OVER $1,500 OCCURRED TO EITHER UNIT, A CRASH REPORT IS REQUIRED REGARDLESS OF INSURANCE.

NOTE: IF INSURANCE IS UNKNOWN, ASSUME THEY ARE UNINSURED (HIT & RUN OR PARKED-NO DRIVER).

INTERSECTION RELATED?

EXAMPLE

3 VEHICLES ARE LINED

UP WAITING FOR THE STOP LIGHT TO TURN GREEN. A FOURTH VEHICLE REAR ENDS UNIT 3, MORE THAN 60 FEET FROM THE INTERSECTION. DID THE INTERSECTION HAVE ANY BEARING ON THE OCCURRENCE OF THE CRASH?

private property
PRIVATE PROPERTY
  • DAMAGE TO PRIVATE PROPERTY DOES NOT EQUATE TO A PRIVATE PROPERTY CRASH
  • IT IS NOT A PRIVATE PROPERTY CRASH IF THE CRASH BEGINS ON A ROADWAY

See SR1050 Instruction Manual page 10

  • LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION
  • ASK AN EMT OR A WITNESS
  • USE YOUR EXPERT INVESTIGATIVE SKILLS TO CAPTURE THIS DATA
  • COMPLETE DATA = FEDERAL $$$ FOR SAFETY BELT PROGRAMS

  • MORE LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION
  • COMPLETE DATA = FEDERAL $$$ FOR ALCOHOL SAFETY PROGRAMS
  • TEST THE CMV DRIVER AFTER EVERY FATAL CRASH
  • TRACK TEST RESULTS AND FORWARD TO IDOT NO MATTER HOW LATE
  • USE FORMAT ABOVE

crash data is a strategic asset
CRASH DATA IS A STRATEGIC ASSET
  • CRASH DATA IS FUNDAMENTAL TO THE PLANNING, OPERATION AND EVALUATION OF SAFETY PROGRAMS.
  • FEDERAL TRAFFIC SAFETY AGENCIES HAVE A COMBINED BUDGET OF OVER 2.5 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR.

NHTSA $700 MILLION

FMCSA $500 MILLION

FHWA $1.2 BILLION

single vehicle crash example
SINGLE VEHICLE CRASH EXAMPLE

Example:Unit 1 slips on a patch of ice, spins out of control, leaves the roadway and strikes a tree in the median. This should be coded 6 – Fixed object. Note: simply losing control and leaving the roadway does not, in this case, involve a harmful event. Consideration must be given to when damage actually occurs. Therefore, losing control does not warrant coding this crash 8 – Other noncollision.

multi vehicle crash example
MULTI-VEHICLE CRASH EXAMPLE

Unit 1

Example: Unit 1 approaches a four-way stop intersection from the east. Unit 1 slides on a patch of ice, spins through the stop sign striking Unit 2, then proceeded westward through the intersection. This should be coded as 15 – Angle; based on the intendeddirection of travel for each unit prior to the onset of the crash.

multi vehicle crash example47
MULTI-VEHICLE CRASH EXAMPLE

Unit 2

Example: Two motor vehicles are on the same roadway heading in opposite directions. Unit 1 loses control, crosses a median, and strikes Unit 2 at an angle, with nearly all damage occurring on one side of each motor vehicle. This should be coded as 13 - Sideswipe oppositedirection, even though the motor vehicles collided at an angle, based on the intendeddirection of each unit prior to the onset of the crash.

DIAGRAM AND NARRATIVE
  • A DIAGRAM & NARRATIVE ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL TYPE B CRASHES EVEN IF UNITS HAVE BEEN MOVED
  • ALWAYS COMPLETE A DIAGRAM & NARRATIVE WHEN SAFE TO DO SO
