Abstract MassDOT Highway Division obtains crash data from the MassDOT Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) Division and uses it for a number of purposes. The primary function is to provide a foundation for developing safety improvement projects. The Top High Crash Locations Report is one of the tools used in this process. Previously, MassDOT Highway Division, with the assistance from Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS), produced a Top 1000 Highway Crash Locations Report which included all types of locations (interchanges, intersections and rotaries). Three years ago, MassDOT Highway Division developed a new report type where the locations identified were crash clusters at intersections (no grade separated locations and no locations with weaving sections). Beginning two years ago, the report also included the top bicycle and pedestrian clusters. This year, MassDOT Highway Division has also prepared a Top High Crash Locations Report which includes the top 200 high crash intersection locations using crash data from 2007-2009 and also includes the weighted (by crash severity) highest frequency bicycle-motor vehicle and pedestrian-motor vehicle crash locations for 2002-2009.
