Street Safety: All Traffic Crashes

The Street Safety: All Traffic Crashes indicator measures the total number of traffic crash incidents each year in the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area and Champaign County. Street safety is an important part of community safety, especially as interest in and use of alternative means of transportation increase.

Since 1998, the total number of crash incidents in the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area reached its lowest point in 2011. However, the total number of crash incidents has been increasing since then, and in 2018 was at its highest level since 2007.

The total number of crash incidents in Champaign County has increased by over 500 from 2012 to 2018. The number of traffic crash fatalities was highest in 2016 for both the Champaign-Urbana urbanized area and Champaign County.

This data was sourced from the Champaign-Urbana Urban Area Safety Plan and Rural Champaign County Area Safety Plan, prepared and released by the Champaign Urbana Urbanized Area Transportation Study (CUUATS).
