FDOT's 2017 Highway Safety Matrix: Florida counties with highest injuries and fatalities


The county and city matrices were designed to provide traffic safety planners an objective, data-driven tool to rank traffic safety projects. Both counties and cities are divided into three population groups. The numbers in each matrix represents where counties or cities rank within their population group in a particular program area, with “1” representing the worst crash rate, as described below. For example, the “1” next to Hillsborough indicates they are ranked 1st in impaired driving serious injury and fatality crashes among the 24 counties in Group I. The top 20% is highlighted in each population group by program area.
