Working to end vehicle into building crashes
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 who work, play, shop and eat. The Council is comprised of volunteers from a variety of backgrounds who are passionate about ending Storefront crashes
Incidents every day
Deaths every year
Happen in retail stores
... And it doesn't have to be this way
Our storefront crash statistics are the most complete ever assembled for accidents of this type.
Our 2014-2022 storefront crash statistics are among the most complete ever assembled for accidents on private property. Federal and State agencies do not regularly receive such data as part of any national reporting system, so our data collection of accidents involving commercial properties (such as shopping centers, strip malls, and many roadside locations) is unique and very useful to government officials, researchers, underwriters, risk managers, and safety professionals.
We share our data with these and many other third parties, and we share our compiled statistics free online on our website.
The Storefront Safety Initiative
The Storefront Safety Initiative provides free resources to those working to increase pedestrian safety where we eat, work, play & shop.
As part of our research work with the Storefront Safety Council, we have been collecting data from all over the United States for more than ten years. Our database of compiled storefront crashes now numbers over 25,000 incidents, and we have additional confirming data on more than 15,000 other vehicle-into-building and related incidents.
