Utah-based traffic safety data analysis company, Numetric, recently introduced two new technology suites designed to identify and correct common hazards causing motor vehicle accidents in communities across the country. The CEO of Numetric says their goal is to help every traffic safety organization make data-driven decisions to improve the function and safety of roadways. The technology is already receiving rave reviews from law enforcement officials. Numetric technology is delivering crucial accident data in mere moments, helping them prevent accidents and save lives throughout the state.
Numetric Safety Suite allows local public transportation agencies to access current motor vehicle crash data, isolate intersections and other high-risk areas, and identify common causes of car accidents. Safety suite also includes a program called Crash Reports, which speeds up the process of responding to requests for crash data. What once took an entire team days and weeks to do, now takes Safety Suite mere moments.
This data empowers agencies to arrive at the best safety solution for each common crash location. In some cases, it may be a simple fix, like installing rumble strips or a median. In others, the ideal solution may require roads to be redesigned.
After the local public transportation agency and Safety Suite have identified a problematic location, Design Suite is used to analyze the cost and efficacy of various safety solutions. Numetric understands that most municipalities have limited resources to dedicate toward road safety improvements. Design Suite helps engineers and planners estimate the value of different options.
South Carolina Car Accident Statistics
In 2016, a traffic collision occurred every 3.7 minutes in the state of South Carolina. Fatal wrecks happened on average every 9.3 hours. Every 8.5 minutes someone was injured in a motor vehicle accident. Not only do these accidents cause immeasurable physical and emotional pain and suffering, they cost billions of dollars in medical costs, lost productivity, and property damage.
According to crash data available for 2016, environmental factors were the second leading cause of traffic collisions that year. These are precisely the types of accidents Numetric is hoping to prevent with their technology. South Carolina is one of six states currently utilizing Numetric road safety programs. The company also announced plans to roll out more technology to assist agencies in utilizing safety funds in smart ways for real safety advancements across roadways nationwide
