The Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) is a suite of software analysis tools for evaluating safety and operational effects of geometric design decisions on highways.
IHSDM is a decision-support tool. It provides estimates of a highway design's expected safety and operational performance and checks existing or proposed highway designs against relevant design policy values. IHSDM results support decision making in the highway design process. Intended users include highway project managers, designers, and traffic and safety reviewers in State and local highway agencies and engineering consulting firms.
IHSDM currently includes six evaluation modules (Crash Prediction, Design Consistency, Intersection Review, Policy Review, Traffic Analysis, and Driver/Vehicle). This Web site summarizes the capabilities and applications of the IHSDM evaluation modules. It also provides a library of the research reports documenting their development.
The Unified Basemap Repository is a centralized repository for hosting GIS datasets for use at the Florida Department of Transportation and other Florida government agencies and organizations.
To download any of the available GIS datasets, click on the desired GIS File Category. The available files will be displayed in a secondary grid. Click "download" to download any of the GIS datasets.
There is a limited number of concurrent downloads allowed, so if you click "download" and are taken to the download queue page, just wait for an available slot to open up and your download will begin automatically.
This is a link to the most commonly requested CAR Reports and their output. Each folder contains a set of reports or additional sub-folders to help you find the report you need.

The home of the U.S. Government’s open data
Here you will find data, tools, and resources to conduct research, develop web and mobile applications, design data visualizations, and more.
American FactFinder provides access to data about the United States, Puerto Rico and the Island Areas. The data in American FactFinder come from several censuses and surveys.
This document is an initial implementation of documenting available crash related data for the State of Florida. This effort was initiated thru the Florida Traffic Safety Data Sub Committee under leadership from the Florida Traffic Records Coordinating Committee. Further enhancements of this effort are anticipated. For Information concerning this document please contact Joseph Santos, Transportation Safety Engineer, Florida Department Of Transportation, email: email@example.com, phone: (850) 414-4097
The scope of this 2006 assessment covered all of the components of a traffic records system. The purpose was to determine whether the Florida traffic records system is capable of supporting management’s needs to identify the state’s safety problems, to manage the countermeasures applied to reduce or eliminate those problems, and to evaluate those programs for their effectiveness. The following discusses some of the key findings regarding the ability of the present traffic records system to support management of the state’s highway safety programs.
