CDC is releasing a redesigned version of Motor Vehicle Prioritizing Interventions and Cost Calculator for States (MV PICCS 3.0, pronounced “MV picks”), which now includes 2015 data and a user-friendly graphical interface.
What Is MV PICCS 3.0 and Why Is It Important?
In the United States, motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death. With proven prevention strategies, CDC’s newly updated web tool can help strengthen state’s motor vehicle injury prevention efforts, and save both lives and money.
MV PICCS 3.0 is a free interactive calculator that helps state decision‑makersprioritize and select from a suite of 14 effective motor vehicle injury prevention interventions. MV PICCS 3.0 calculates the expected number and monetized value of injuries prevented and lives saved at the state level. It also calculates the costs of implementation, while taking into account available resources. The updated tool includes easy access to CDC’s intervention fact sheets and a completely new user-friendly interface. Another new feature is the ability to save or print sharable reports with MV PICCS results.
Where Can I Find the Tool and Additional Resources?
The tool and additional resources, such as the project report and how to use MV PICCS, are available to the public at www.cdc.gov/
