Archives of Statistical Summaries

The NYSDMV maintains statistical data about motor vehicle crashes, vehicle registrations and drivers.  All statistical summaries are PDF documents and require Adobe Acrobat Reader®.

Motor Vehicle Crashes

The crash data are compiled from the crash reports submitted to the NYSDMV by motorists and police agencies. The crash data are released after a complete calendar year is compiled. The data for the years 1995 - 2012 are currently available.

Some of the other information, for example, the numbers for population and road miles, are collected from other government agencies.

  • A calculation made with rounded number is the possible cause of a total percentage that is higher or lower than 100.0%.
  • Some data were collected only from Police Accident Reports (MV-104).  The title of the data table includes " (P)".
  • The Property Damage Crash reports include only data from crashes that cause damage of more than $1,000 to the property of one person.
  • The term "vehicles" does not include bicycles.
  • The term "drivers" does not include bicyclists.
