According to OSHP, the dashboard provides a detailed view of crashes and violations caused by distracted driving across the state.

Users have the ability to filter data and find specific county and route statistics.

The tool will also track the work troopers around the state are doing in an effort to reduce the impact of distracted driving. An interactive map shows videos of troopers enforcing violations, as well as locations of distracted driving corridors.

DeWine wrote in a release that distracted driving “most certainly played a role” in making 2020 the “deadliest year on Ohio’s roads in more than a decade.”
