HSRC completes crash data site

News Brief

CHAPEL HILL — The UNC Highway Safety Research Center recently unveiled the NC Crash Data Query Web site, an online analysis tool of 2002 North Carolina Department of Transportation crash data.

The site, funded by the North Carolina Department of Transportation and the North Carolina Governor's Highway Safety Program, allows users to create tables reflecting crash, vehicle, and person counts for crashes in North Carolina in 2002. The tables can either reflect the entire state of North Carolina or a specific city, county, Highway Patrol Area, or NCDOT Division. In addition, crash data can be analyzed using a variety of variables, including time of day, road surface condition and vehicle count.

HSRC is currently inputting the 2001 and 2003 NCDOT crash data into the site. This data is expected to be available by the fall of 2005.

For additional information and assistance with the site, please contact Carol Martell at 919-962-8713 or Eric Rodgman at 919-962-8709.
