Source of Data

 

The information contained in this Traffic Crash Statistics booklet is extracted from law enforcement agency long-form reports of traffic crashes. A law enforcement officer must submit a long-form crash report when investigating:

  • Motor vehicle crashes resulting in death or personal injury, or
  • Motor vehicle crashes in which one or more of the following conditions occur:
  • Leaving the scene involving damage to an attended vehicle or property
    (Section 316.061 (1), F.S.), or
  • Driving while under the influence of alcoholic beverages, chemical substances, or
    controlled substances or with an unlawful blood alcohol level (Section 316.193, F.S.).

An investigating officer may report other traffic crashes on the long-form crash report. In particular, applicable statutes specify an officer's discretion to submit a long-form report in crashes where a vehicle is rendered inoperable to the degree that a wrecker is required to remove it from traffic.

Statutory revisions in 1983 and 1989 reduced the number of non-injury crashes required to be reported to the Department. Any presentation of historical data that includes such crashes, such total traffic crash counts, will reflect these changes. Data on traffic crashes involving death, injury, or other criteria for law enforcement long-form reports as outlined above are not affected.


Definition of Terms

Vehicle occupantsDrivers and passengers of automobiles, vans, trucks, buses, and motor homes.
 
Long formRefers to a crash report prepared by a law enforcement officer where there has been a crash resulting in bodily injury, the death of a person or where a specified criminal offense has been committed.

* This table lists the vehicle types and the number of vehicles within each type, that were involved in crashes, by type of crash. For clarification purposes, there were 4,614 vehicles involved in fatal crashes, not 4,614 fatal crashes or fatalities. For example, If one passenger van and one motorcycle were in the same fatal crash, then one passenger van is counted in the 367 passenger vans in fatal crashes and one motorcycle is counted in the 421 motorcycles in fatal crashes. It does not mean 367 people were killed in passenger vans and 421 people were killed on motorcycles.
