The Storefront Safety Council was launched in 2011 to reduce the number of vehicle-into-building crashes. These mostly preventable accidents are injuring and killing Americans where they work, play, shop, and eat. The Council is comprised of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds who are passionate about ending Storefront crashes. Get to know us better.

Our storefront crash statistics are the most complete ever assembled for accidents of this type. As of August 1, 2021 our database contains more than 22,000 analyzed accidents and an additional 7,000 additional accidents collected but not analyzed (and not included in our statistical reporting). Analysis includes statistics on causation of crashes, age of drivers, and types of buildings or businesses most frequently struck by vehicles. We have cooperated with the Texas Traffic Institute at Texas A&M University. More and more trends seem to be developing and becoming more clear.
