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.
Click in the map on a city or town and the injury and fatality count over the last ten years will appear in the charts to the right. Hover over a city or town to see 2014 statistics on injuries and fatalities from crashes involving motorized vehicles. Total motorized crashes (including trucks, bicycle, and pedestrian-involved crashes) in 2014 in each city or town are also included as a reference.
Crashes involving motorized vehicles caused a total of 16,869 injuries and 124 fatalities in the Boston region in 2014. Each dot below represents one injury and each solid dot represents one fatality as a result of a motorized crash.
