  • Maine Highway Safety Facts 2016

  • The Bureau of Highway Safety and the Maine Department of Transportation are pleased to present the 2016 edition of Maine Highway Safety Facts. This publication provides Maine crash data facts through 2015 giving a view of traffic crashes and their factors. It can be a valuable tool in problem identification, safety education and community activities. Since it is intended to provide a general information overview, the data is presented in a very basic format. Trend lines reflect five-year annual averages. Topics covered represent the most frequently requested information. Data sources are from the Maine Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS) and MaineDOTs crash data system. Any comments or questions you may have about the information are welcome.
