Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS)

NOTES:
  • RLR intersection fatalities include FARS “Relation to Junction” attributes 2) intersection (non-interchange), 3) intersection related (non-interchange), and 4) driveway, alley access, etc. (non-interchange).
  • Intersection fatalities include FARS “Relation to Junction” attributes 2) intersection (non-interchange) and 3) intersection related (non-interchange).
