Ohio has found a way to accurately pinpoint more than 90 percent of its local crash sites and high hazard areas. This has allowed Ohio to apply for and receive millions in additional federal safety funds to address high-crash areas throughout the state. Ohio has done this by working with the locals to build one unified set of highly accurate map data, housed in Ohio’s Location Based Response System (LBRS).
The Ohio Department of Transportation thought its high hazard locations were accurate before LBRS. Yet, in
just one Ohio county, LBRS data was able to identify 13 percent more intersections or road end-points, as well
as 20 percent more roadway segments than ODOT did in its own roadway inventory. In addition, LBRS identified 164,250 individual local address points, while ODOT data wasn’t able to identify any.
DDTi pioneered the technology behind the field verification and maintenance process that makes
Ohio’s LBRS so pinpoint accurate.
ACCURACY MATTERS. Every time. Everywhere.
In every situation.

The U.S. Department of Transportation has lauded Ohio’s LBRS as a “best practice” in its 2011 Transportation for the Nation strategic plan. In addition, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration was so impressed with Ohio’s development of a shared dataset to improve crash identification that agency auditors said they would suggest other states consider using their Section 408 funds to develop similar systems.
