Crash Data System
Florida’s Crash Data System contains information compiled by law enforcement officers at the scene of a traffic crash. Information in the system includes:
- Person type (driver, occupant, pedestrian, etc.);
- Number and severity of injuries;
- Violation of traffic law;
- Time of day, day of week;
- Alcohol and/or drug impairment;
- Latitude and longitude of the crash location;
- Vehicle characteristics;
- Event characteristics (manner of the collision, number of vehicles involved, direction of travel); and
- Environment (weather conditions).
Data from this system helps determine the number of alcohol-related crashes; the involvement of vulnerable road users such as bicyclists, pedestrians, teens, and older road users; and what is the interaction with other components including the time, weather, and driver behavior. Information on Florida's Crash Data System is maintained by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (DHSMV).
