Collision Information System
The Collision Information System allows users to query and analyze data of traffic collisions on provincial jurisdiction highways. The data comes from the ICBC Traffic Accident System database. Data is available back to 1987. All accidents in the system are located on the Landmark Kilometre Inventory.

Functions of the Collision Information System
- Select a Subset of the Collision Data
The system provides a variety of methods for selecting any subset of the collision data for subsequent analysis.
- Fatal/Injury/PDO Counts
List the total number of collisions, the number of fatal/injury/property damage only (PDO) collisions, and the number of fatalities and injuries by year or at each separate location where there is at least one collision.
- Collision Prone Locations
List point locations where user specified thresholds for collision rate, frequency and severity are exceeded, or where one type of collision is occurring disproportionately.
- Collision Prone Sections
List highway segments where user specified thresholds for collision rate, frequency and severity are exceeded, or where one type of collision is occurring disproportionately.
- Details Report
For each collision in a user specified data subset, provides complete information from the MV6020 form (excluding personal information).
- Summary Report
For each collision in a user specified data subset, lists the most important fields from the MV6020 form (e.g. collision date, time, location, type, total killed, total injured, primary occurrence, etc.).
- Collision Histogram
A graphical representation of a segment of road showing the number of collisions of each severity every 100 m.
- Collision Rate Table
A table where the columns are highway classification, the rows are traffic volume ranges, and a number of different cell entries are possible including, collision rate, fatality rate, critical rate, # or % of fatal, injury and PDO collisions, etc. Used to calculate provincial average collision rates.
- Specified Sections Analysis
Performs collision rate and other analyses on sections of highway defined in an uploaded CSV file.
