Figure 6.10 Graphic. Example Evaluation Report Card

Long Description

Figure 6.10 is a chart from the Champaign Urbana Urbanized Area Transportation Study (CUUATS) in Illinois, showing tracking dials they use to understand the annual system-level safety performance for their long-range transportation plan (LRTP). This figure specifically shows that total crashes, “A injuries,” and bicycle crashes have decreased, while total fatalities and pedestrian crashes have increased between when the LRTP was updated in 2014 and when the report card was published in 2015. This information is used by the metropolitan planning organization to adjust performance information, if necessary, and revisit objectives and strategies for meeting safety goals.
