16 Definitions Definitions 100M VMT - VMT is a measurement of the number of miles traveled annually by motor vehicles. It is commonly reported in units of 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled (100M VMT). Alcohol-involved Crash An indication on the UCR that 1) a DWI citation was issued, 2) alcohol involvement was a contributing factor to the crash, or 3) a person in control of a vehicle (including a pedestrian or pedalcyclist) was suspected of being under the influence of alcohol. Alcohol-involved Driver A person in control of a vehicle who was cited for DWI or indicated on the Uniform Crash Report as being either suspected or determined by testing to be under the influence of alcohol. Crash An reported incident on a public roadway involving one or more motor vehicles that resulted in death, personal injury, or at least $500 in property damage. on private property (such as a parking lot) are not included. Driver A person in control of a motorized vehicle. Pedestrians and pedalcyclists are not drivers. Fatal Crash - A crash in which at least one individual was killed. Note, more than one individual can be killed in a single fatal crash. Fatalities - The number of people killed in a crash. The terms killed and deaths are synonymous with fatalities. A fatality is crash-related when it occurs at the time of the crash or within 30 days. Incapacitating Injury An injury, other than a fatal injury, where the person was carried from the scene of the crash or where the injured person was unable to walk, drive or perform normal activities he/she was capable of performing before the injury occurred, as observed by the officer at the scene of the crash. Also known as a Class A injury. Injuries - The number of people injured in a crash, as opposed to the number of crashes in which people were injured. This includes incapacitating injuries, visible injuries and possible injuries. Counts include people injured, but not killed. Injury Crash - A reported crash in which at least one individual was injured. Injury crashes include incapacitating injuries (Class A), visible injuries (Class B) and possible injuries (Class C). Fatal crashes are not included in this category. Local Resident - A person whose residence was within 25 miles of the crash site. Possible Injury An injury reported or claimed which was not fatal, incapacitating or visible by xvi

17 Definitions the officer at the scene of the crash. Also known as a Class C injury or Complaint of Injury. Occupant A person who is in or upon a motor vehicle in transport. Includes the driver, passengers, and persons riding on the exterior of a motor vehicle. Pedalcyclist A person riding a mechanism of transport that is powered solely by pedals. Pedestrian A person on foot, walking, running, jogging, hiking, sitting or lying down who is involved in a motor vehicle traffic crash. Property Damage Only Crash (PDO) A reported crash on a public road that did not involve injuries or fatalities but resulted in more than $500 in property damage (a.k.a. Class O crash). Rate A rate is calculated by dividing a total count (such as total crashes, drivers, or fatalities) by statistics such as VMT, number of licensed drivers, or population. See page 11 for more detail. Ratio of Males to Females The number of males for every one female. The ratio is calculated by dividing the number of males by the number of females. For example, five males and two females have a ratio of 2.5 males for every one female (5 males / 2 females). Rural An area with a population of less than 2,500. Serious Injuries 1) an incapacitating injury or 2) a visible, but non-incapacitating, injury. Also known as Class A plus Class B injuries. Class C injuries characterized as possible, complaint of injury are excluded. Severity of Injury The degree of injury to a person in a crash as describe by the KABCO scale: K is Killed, ABC indicate injuries (A=incapacitating, B=visible, C=possible), and O is Property Damage Only (Not Injured). Uniform Crash Report (UCR) A statewide form, submitted by the many law enforcement agencies in the state to the NMDOT, for any crash incident on a public roadway involving one or more motor vehicles that resulted in death, personal injury, or at least $500 in property damage. Urban A town or a city with a population of 2,500 or more. Vehicle A motorized car, truck, bus, van, or motorcycle (mechanically or electrically powered) for carrying or transporting persons or things. Pedestrians and pedalcyclists are counted as nonmotorized vehicles when in a crash with a motorized vehicle. Visible Injury A visible but non-incapacitating injury, as observed by the officer at the scene of the crash. Also known as a Class B injury. xvii

Animal-involved crashes in San Juan, Otero and Taos County decreased by 10% or more. Speeding, as a contributing factor to crashes, continued to decrease from 2010 to Alcohol-involved crashes continued to decrease in Eddy, Lincoln, Roosevelt and Socorro County. The crash rate continued to decrease in Eddy, Rio Arriba, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Taos County. Areas of known concern in New Mexico for 2011: The fatality rate in New Mexico is still higher than the national average. Alcohol-involved crashes account for almost half (43.3%) of all crash-related fatalities. Unbelted fatalities decreased by only 3 people from 2010 to % of motorcyclists in crashes were not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash in Driver Inattention, Failure To Yield, or Following Too Close were the main causes of crashes. Many counties saw an increase in both total and alcohol-involved crashes from 2010 to The rate of teen drivers (15-19) in crashes is almost three times higher than the statewide rate. The highest rate of alcohol-involved drivers occurs with drivers years of age. Animal-involved crashes increased in Colfax, McKinley and Sandoval County from 2010 to

28 Rates Rates Changes in state population, number of licensed drivers, registered vehicles, and traffic volumes measured in 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) affect important traffic safety measurements. Table 9 presents the denominators used in calculating different traffic crash rates. Depending on the context, crash rates can be expressed in any of the following ways: number of crashes per 100,000 people, number of crashes per 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT), number of crashes per 1,000 licensed drivers, or number of crashes per 1,000 registered vehicles. Using rates instead of the absolute number of crashes enables statistical comparisons across geographies, time periods, and populations. In other words, rates are a way of standardizing measurements to a common base (e.g., per 100 Million VMT) so the results can be directly comparable regardless of to whom, where, and when the event occurred. Table 9: Rate Denominators: Population, Vehicle Miles Traveled, Licensed Drivers, and Motor Vehicle Registrations, Year New and Mexico Motor Vehicle New Registrations, Mexico Population 1,2 New Mexico Vehicle Miles Licensed (U.S. Census, Traveled July 1 st Estimates) (100M VMT) 3 Drivers 4 New Mexico Motor Vehicle Registrations ,855, ,250,213 1,572, ,877, ,251,012 1,541, ,903, ,289,089 1,579, ,932, ,322,258 1,586, ,962, ,358,638 1,624, ,990, ,389,962 1,646, ,010, ,407,193 1,616, ,036, ,424,231 1,674, ,064, ,442,737 1,665, ,078, ,455,481 1,772,040 1 Population estimates for were revised after the 2010 U.S. Census. Therefore rates based on population in this publication are not comparable to rates published prior to Annual Estimates of the Resident Population: April 1, 2000 to July 1, U.S. Census Bureau, Population Division. Release Date: March CO-EST New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT). 100M VMT = 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled. Rates based on VMT in 2011 are not comparable to previous years due to a change in the calculation of VMT. 4 New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department, Motor Vehicle Division, July July U.S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, Office of Highway Policy Information. Highway Statistics Series, Vehicles, Table MV-1,

29 Vehicle Miles Traveled (100M VMT) New Mexico Population, Vehicle Registrations and Licensed Drivers Rates The convention for measuring traffic volume is in units of 100 Million Vehicle Miles Traveled (100M VMT). Until other indicators of traffic volume, e.g. traffic flow as measured in number of cars per segment for a given period of time, become available, VMT is the most appropriate denominator for estimating crash rates. The assumption is that the more miles a person travels the greater is his/her exposure to the risk of a crash. Thus VMT is the closest measure of how many miles people actually drive on the road in a given year. By expressing crash rates as the number of crashes per 100M VMT, the crash rate is standardized, or normalized, to per 100 Million VMT thus allowing comparisons of the safety of traveling on different road segments across time. In 2011, the AADT calculation method for VMT was revised 5. The result was a large increase in VMT from 2010 to 2011, from to M VMT. Therefore, rates based on 2011 VMT are not comparable to previous years. Figure 6: Variability in Vehicle Driving Volume compared to Population, Vehicle Registrations, and Licensed Drivers in New Mexico, ,500, ,250, ,000, ,750, ,500, ,250,000 5 AADT = Annual Average Daily Traffic by functional classification. The average AADT in each county was added to routes with zero measured AADT. The calculation revision mostly affected rural local road VMT, which doubled in number when the rural local AADT in each county was added to rural local routes with zero measured AADT. 12

30 Total per 100,000 Population Total per 100M Vehicle Miles Traveled Rates Historical Rate Trends (2002 compared to 2011) Overall, there has been a significant reduction in traffic crashes and fatalities over the past decade, even after factoring in changes in population, traffic volume, licensed drivers or registered vehicles. (Figure 7) The crash rate based on population has decreased 22.2% since 2002 (from 2,674 to 2,080 crashes per 100,000 NM population). (Figure 7, Table 10) The fatal crash rate (crashes where at least one person was killed) decreased 31.6% since 2002 (from 21.5 to 14.7 fatal crashes per 100,000 population). (Figure 8, Table 11) The fatality rate (fatalities per 100,000 population) decreased by 30.2% (24.2 to 16.9). (Figure 9, Table 12) Figure 7: Crash Rates, ,000 2,500 2,000 1,500 2, , , ,537 2,513 2, ,310 2, ,073 2, , Total per 100,000 Population Total per 100M Vehicle Miles Traveled Rates based on 2011 VMT are not comparable to previous years due to a change in the calculation method. 13

(Figure 7, Table 10) The fatal crash rate (crashes where at least one person was killed) decreased 4.5% from 15.4 to 14.7 fatal crashes per 100,000 population. (Figure 8, Table 11) The fatality rate (fatalities per 100,000 population) changed by 0.0% (16.9 in both 2010 and 2011). (Figure 9, Table 12) The fatality rate in New Mexico (1.36 fatalities per 100M VMT) was 0.26 higher than the national average of (Figure 10, Table 12) Figure 10: Comparison of New Mexico to National Fatality Rates, New Mexico Fatality Rates National Fatality Rates
