Fatal Crash Data

The 2020-2023 Strategic Transportation Safety Plan set a performance target of reducing fatalities by 15% for the 2020 to 2023 time frame. The Safety Programs and Crash Data unit provides fatal data and statistics used to develop performance targets, performance tracking, and trends that are used to help reduce the fatalities on Colorado roadways.

The Safety Programs and Crash Data unit also provides data to the Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). FARS is a nationwide census providing NHTSA, Congress and the American public annual data regarding fatal injuries suffered in motor vehicle traffic crashes.  View the FARS Encyclopedia.

Crash Data Dashboards

Transportation safety is a top priority for Colorado. CDOT Traffic Safety & Engineering Services is developing performance dashboards to better understand numbers, causes, types, and locations of crashes in order to develop effective countermeasures and meet performance targets.

Disclaimer: Colorado traffic crashes as presented in the dashboard are approximate and subject to change. The official number of traffic fatalities in Colorado can be found on NHTSA's Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) site.
