INTRODUCTION & GLOSSARYThe purpose of this document is to provide a description of Oklahoma traffic crash, injury, and fatality data. Thisdocument is a resource for local transportation, law enforcement, health, and other agencies charged with theresponsibility of coping with the increasing number and cost of traffic crashes.This introduction section is intended to provide readers with an overall description of traffic safety across the stateof Oklahoma for the calendar year 2020. The tables and charts provided in the following sections include morespecific details about crashes and injuries across various regions of the state (i.e. counties and cities), as well asdata on particular aspects of traffic safety in Oklahoma (i.e. impaired driving, distracted driving, occupantprotection, etc.)Reporting Year:2020 calendar year.Fatalities:On January 1, 2001, Oklahoma's reporting standards for fatalities were changed to meetnational standards. Fatalities that occur within 30 days of a traffic crash are reported asfatalities.Agency:Reporting agencies include: Oklahoma Highway Patrol, city police, sheriff departments, gameor park rangers, campus police, or other agencies.For the purpose of this document:OHP Oklahoma Highway PatrolNon-OHP all reporting agencies except OHPStatewide all reporting agenciesExclusions:The Department of Public Safety database is used with one exclusion: non-traffic crashes.Non-traffic crashes are those occurring on private property, deliberate acts, medical episodessuch as heart attacks, legal interventions, suicides, industrial crashes, drownings, boat crashes,incidents, and others. These crash records are kept in the DPS database but are not used forstatistical purposes, and are therefore not represented in this document.Glossary –Alcohol-Related:Indicates the presence of any amount of alcohol.Beginning with 2007 crash data, additional data relating to alcohol has been addedto the crash data. This additional data accounts for improved reporting of alcoholrelated fatalities and injuries. The additional information is from Medical ExaminerReports on fatalities and Board of Tests.Contributing Factor:Previously the “cause of crash” indicated the primary cause of the collision and itwas not possible to determine individual driver actions and behaviors. With the2007 revision of the Official Oklahoma Traffic Collision Report form, the cause wasreplaced with a contributing factor for each driver which allows more in depthanalyses.Crash Data:The Records Management Division of the Oklahoma Department of Public Safetymaintains a database of crash records as reported by law enforcement agenciesthroughout Oklahoma. This database includes crashes resulting in injury, death or2
INTRODUCTION & GLOSSARYover 5001 property damage. Crashes occurring on private or public property arenot included in this database. Data elements included relate to information onvehicles, roadways, crash circumstances, drivers, passengers, pedestrians,motorcyclists, and bicyclists involved in these crashes.Driver:A driver is an occupant who is in actual physical control of a transport vehicle or,for an out-of-control vehicle, an occupant who was in control until control waslost.Drug-Related:Indicates the presence of drugs, whether illegal or prescription.KABCO Scale:This scale is used for classifying injury severity. The letters in this scale indicate thefollowing injury severities:K Fatal injury – Any injury that directly results in the death of a living personwithin 30 days of a motor vehicle crash.A Suspected serious injury – Any injury, other than a fatal injury, which preventsthe injured person from walking, driving or normally continuing the activitiesthe person was capable of performing before the injury occurred. Formerly an“incapacitating injury.”B Suspected minor injury – Any injury other than a fatal injury or a suspectedserious injury that is evident to observers at the scene. Formerly a “nonincapacitating injury.”C Possible injury – Any injury reported or claimed which is not a fatal injury,incapacitating injury or non-incapacitating evident injury.O Non injury – No personal injury. Non injury crashes may also be referred to as‘Property Damage Only’ crashes, or PDO.The overall injury severity assigned to each crash is based on the person in thecrash who sustained the worst injury.Large Truck:Large trucks include the following vehicle configurations as shown on the OfficialOklahoma Traffic Collision Report. Single Unit Truck - 2 Axles, Single Unit Truck - 3or More Axles, Truck/Trailer, Truck-Tractor/Semi-Trailer, Truck-Tractor/DoubleTrailers, Truck/Tractor/Triple Trailers and Truck more than 10,000 lbs. - CannotClassify. This replaces the previous year’s sections about commercial vehicles.Passenger:A passenger is any occupant of a road vehicle other than its driver.Pedalcyclist:An operator or occupant of a non-motorized other road vehicle that is propelledby pedaling.1Title 47 § 40-1023
INTRODUCTION & GLOSSARYPedestrian:A pedestrian is any person who is not an occupant of a road vehicle.Rural Area:A rural area is any area which is not within urban areas. For the purposes ofreporting here, a crash is classified as rural if it occurs inside the limits of apopulated area whose population is 4,999 or fewer, or if it has been marked asoccurring “near,” rather than “in,” a city.Unsafe Speed:The revision of the Official Oklahoma Traffic Collision Report in 2007 allowsreporting of a contributing factor for each vehicle involved in a crash instead of asingle cause of the crash. This accounts for the increased reporting of crashesinvolving unsafe speed.Urban Area:An urban area includes the area within boundaries that have been fixed byresponsible state and local officials in cooperation with each other and approvedby the Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation. For anarea to be considered urban, it must have a population of 5,000 or more, asdesignated by the U.S. Bureau of the Census.Work Zone:A work zone is an area of a trafficway where construction, maintenance, or utilitywork activities are identified by warning signs/signals/indicators, including thoseon transport vehicles. It extends from the first warning sign, signal, or flashinglights to the “END ROAD WORK” sign or the last traffic control device pertinent forthat work activity.VMT:Vehicle Miles Traveled.4
