Missouri’s Traffic Crash Dashboard

Submitted by: Central Office 

Innovation Description and Benefit:

This innovation is interactive dashboards that allow users to filter crash data for safety needs. The dashboards are located on Savemolives under the “Home” and “Focus Areas” headers.  Currently, there are dashboards for weekly fatality update, seat belt use, unbelted fatalities, distracted driving, aggressive driving, substance-impaired, motorcyclist and non-motorized fatalities. The dashboards not only allow users to view the crash data on various charts, but also allows users to filter the data to their needs.

Our innovation saves time by allowing employees and the general public to have instant access to crash data.  They no longer have to submit a request for the information and wait for the request to be processed.  It also saves the department time because we are no longer flooded with simple request daily and allows us to work on larger projects.  This data improves safety by allowing cities and counties to view focus areas and gives a map to show locations of concern.  There are multiple filters that allow them to drill down on problem areas so they can address issues according.  It also improves safety by allowing locals to access key crash data to make better decisions.
