CTSP 2023 Annual Report with Crash Data

The annual report includes highlights and crash data from our 18-county district. These crash fact reports are a great evaluation tool as we work toward reducing injuries and deaths on our roadways and helping build a “traffic safety culture.” This culture prioritizes safety, encourages safe road user behavior, and facilitates stakeholder cooperation. Click here to view our FDOT D2 CTSP Annual Report PDF.

In 2023, the District Two Community Traffic Safety Teams successfully facilitated engineering concerns and assisted in distributing safety materials and education outreach efforts within their communities. These achievements, driven by local data to address concerns focused on the Strategic Highway Safety Plan emphasis areas, are a testament to our commitment and progress towards Target Zero goals.

District Two Crash Data Summaries

This year, we created individual crash fact sheets for all 18 counties with crash, fatality, and serious injury totals from 2023 and the previous four years. They align with the Strategic Highway Safety Plan emphasis areas. These areas, which cover roadways, user behaviors, and road users, are critical to our current safety initiatives. The fact sheets provide key takeaways for each emphasis area, such as the number of crashes during daylight vs. night, male vs. female, and urban vs. rural factors, highlighting the relevance of the data to our targeted messaging.

In conclusion, these reports and crash facts are great evaluation tools. They assist us as we work toward reducing injuries and deaths on our roadways. This culture prioritizes safety and encourages safe road user behavior. 

Signal Four Analytics

On April 24, 2024, the District Two Traffic Safety Program held a virtual Districtwide Discussion about the power of data. The informational presentation offered an in-depth overview of FDOT Target Zero’s Signal Four Analytics public dashboard. Most importantly, these crash facts and research data are available to help improve traffic safety.

Tracking Target ZERO with Signal Four Analytics

  • County-specific crash fact reports with different Strategic Highway Safety emphasis areas are provided at monthly Traffic Safety Team meetings.
  • Safety grant funds are dependent upon data-based facts.
  • Understanding the data will help understand roadway and driver behaviors to make improvements, reduce fatalities, and work toward the Target ZERO.
  • Signal Four Analytics, Florida’s traffic safety public dashboard, is free and easy to use. 

Data-Driving Insight and Strategy

Our new rural-inspired campaign is an example of looking at the numbers and using that data to promote safer roads. After studying national reports and FDOT Target Zero’s Signal Four Analytics, we developed a country-themed “Buckle Up and Slow Down” message.

speeding, aggressive drivers, occupant protection, Country Buckle Up Belt and Slow Down Belt Buckle

We found an overrepresentation of fatality and injury crashes with young men, ages 18–24, in Northeast Florida rural counties caused by speeding and lower safety belt usage. We want young male drivers to change their attitudes about speeding and realize it’s not worth the risk to their lives or future. The goal is to make buckling up and driving at safe speeds the social norm. To learn more, go to our Slow Down post.

Levy and Suwannee are two counties in Northeast Florida with a population under 44,000. Compared with other similarly sized counties in Florida, they are ranked most problematic (#1 and #3) in terms of speed and teen drivers, per the FY2024 Highway Safety Matrix.

Population is one factor not included in the Signal Four Analytics but often needs to be considered. We’ve had substantial population growth in our 18-county district, some counties much more than others. This graph shows the continual increase in our Northeast Florida area.

Together, we can enhance community traffic safety with crash data and Signal Four Analytics.

Our Community Traffic Safety Teams work to make safety improvements with the goal of reducing crashes and saving lives.

Six-Year Crash Fact Report

This FDOT District Two Community Traffic Safety Program’s Six-Year Crash Fact Report provides data for all 18 counties.

The 6-year crash facts covers districtwide numbers, county numbers, population growth, and the emphasis areas of Florida’s Strategic Highway Safety Plan. These include roadway crash facts, user behavior crash facts, and road user crash facts.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Two’s Community Traffic Safety Program mission is to reduce traffic-related fatalities and injuries. This is also the goal of Target Zero – because every life counts, and even one fatality is too many.

The #1 objective of the Community Traffic Safety Program is to reduce the number and severity of crashes. We work at identifying, developing, implementing, and evaluating safety and traffic strategies.

These strategies include planning, design, construction, maintenance, education, and community outreach. We offer traffic safety engineering expertise to the public, and with the help and assistance of our partners, we serve as transportation safety champions.

The six-year historical report is a fundamental evaluation tool as we work toward zero deaths and severe injuries on our Florida roadways.
