A top priority of the Florida Department of Transportation is to improve the safety of Florida’s transportation system. A reduction of the total number of accidents, especially those that involve casualties of the vehicle drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bicyclists, is an important step to developing a safer environment. Fatal crashes are defined as collisions that involve at least one motor vehicle and result in death of at least one of those involved within thirty days of the incident.

This indicator shows alcohol related share of highway crashes and fatalities in Florida in thousands (K). According to Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, alcohol related crash is: a crash involving a driver and/or pedestrian for whom alcohol use was reported (does not presume intoxication). The data is sourced from the DHSMV's Florida Traffic Crash Facts Report and is updated annually usually six months after the end of the year.
