2000 STATEWIDE TRAFFIC ACCIDENT STATISTICS
The following summary of traffic accidents represents only those accidents that have occurred on the State Highway System of Missouri in 2000. The information contained in this publication is a summary of the accident reports provided to the Missouri Department of Transportation. This publication is possible only through the conscientious reporting efforts of Missouri Law Enforcement Agencies. These statistics are compiled pursuant to federal law, 23 USC Section 152.

Chapter 1-A : ACCIDENTS BY TYPE This section divides the total 2000 accidents by severity into the various types. The type indicates what type of impact was involved. It further distinguishes the types by indicating whether they occurred “ON” or “OFF” the roadway.

Chapter 1-B : ACCIDENTS BY CONTRIBUTING CIRCUMSTANCES This section deals with the circumstances that contributed to accidents in 2000. The totals in this section represent the number of accidents and the number of contributing circumstances that relates to those accidents. The total number of reported accidents is somewhat less than the total number of contributing circumstances and the number of drivers because each accident could involve one or more drivers and one or more contributing circumstance.

Chapter 1-C : ACCIDENTS BY POPULATION GROUPING In this section, accidents are grouped according to the population characteristics of their location. Three (3) categories are used: rural, urban (population 5,000 to 49,999), urbanized (population 50,000 to 99,999) and metropolitan (population 100,000 or greater). Currently, the metropolitan boundaries have not been established; therefore, all metropolitan accidents have been included in the urbanized grouping.
