Figure 6.2 Chart. Contributing Factors, Safety Goal Setting
Figure 6.2 is a chart showing a range of factors that contribute to crashes in the Baton Rouge region of Louisiana. The factors listed from most to least contributing are: roadway departures, impaired driving, occupant protection, young drivers, distracted/inattentive drivers, intersections, pedestrians, commercial motor vehicles, older drivers, motorcycles, and bicycles. The purpose of the figure is to make the point that reviewing contributing factor data can encourage an agency to develop safety goals based on the this type of data.
