One of the MPO’s goals is to improve safety on the highway system. That being said, highway crashes claimed the lives of 124 people in the Boston region in 2014. For this reason, we track injuries and fatalities from crashes throughout the region to monitor the safety of the Boston region’s transportation network and use this information to prioritize future investments in the system.
