Safety Data Mart for External Users
Our community of users is working together to reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries due to crashes in the State of Illinois. A primary goal of the Safety Data Mart is to provide a single source of information that provides easy, direct access to information for all authorized business users. Five criteria for data are addressed: timeliness, completeness, accuracy, accessibility and data integration.
If this is your first visit to the Safety Data Mart (SDM), please begin by
(DOT.SafetyData@illinois.gov) to request access to the Safety Data Mart. Once enrolled you will have access to
a variety of tools that have been developed for the purpose of Crash Data analysis.
These include: interactive reports, adhoc reporting through cube browsing and
use of an interactive map.
