Our Research and Data Division (RADD) analyzes crash data and conducts traffic safety research. RADD codes the fatal crash data that goes to the national Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS). We provide statistics and reports for other state agencies, as well as for the news media, private entities, and the public.
RADD manages Washington’s Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), a census of all traffic fatalities occurring on Washington roadways. Find out more about Washington’s collision data sources and why there are sometimes differences in the number of deaths we report and the number reported by other agencies.

Traffic safety requires information from many sources of traffic records. If you are looking for traffic safety information other than fatal crashes, this page provides links to our partner agencies information and data request pages.
See statewide and local crash data by Target Zero priority area. The reports are updated quarterly and include both fatal and serious crash information.
Read our research reports on traffic safety topics such as seat belt use, DUI (Driving Under the Influence), and other Target Zero priority issues.
