The Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization (HRTPO), the metropolitan planning organization (MPO) for the Hampton Roads metropolitan planning area, has completed the DRAFT General Crash Data and Trends - 2011 Update Report.
In 2001, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission initiated the Hampton Roads Regional Safety Study, a comprehensive analysis of highway safety throughout the region. This study included sections examining General Crash Data and Trends, Interstate and Intersection Crash Findings, and Crash Analysis and Countermeasures.
The HRTPO staff updates the General Crash Data and Trends portion of the Regional Safety Study on a biennial basis. Similar to previous editions, the 2011 Update includes an analysis of crashes, injuries, and fatalities on a regional and jurisdictional level, and comparisons are made with other metropolitan areas as well as statewide and national figures.
