To reduce crash-related injuries and fatalities in Illinois, it is vital that the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) receive crash data as quickly as possible. By processing this data in a timely manner, IDOT can ensure it is complete, accurate and available for statistical analysis, research and decision support. In the last 10 years, the overall injury and fatality counts have been declining but there is still more work to be done to continue that trend. IDOT is assisting law enforcement agencies by partnering with third party crash reporting vendors to electronically submit the data that is captured in their reporting systems.

Submitting Crash Report Data via Third Party XML Vendors - In an effort to work with local law enforcement agencies and their software vendors, a new program has been implemented allowing crash report data to be submitted electronically via an XML format defined by IDOT. The crash data will be validated upon submittal, and if accepted successfully, an IDOT‐authorized bar code number will be assigned to each crash report. A number of Third Party XML vendors have been approved to participate in this program. However, it is very important to note that IDOT will not accept electronic reports via third party vendors that have not participated in the established registration process, designed to ensure that electronically submitted crash data meets a minimum level of quality.

IDOT encourages all law enforcement agencies to begin to move forward from paper submittals to electronic crash reporting.

Interested in becoming an Approved Third party XML Vendor?

  1. Contact us at
  2. IDOT will create a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and send it to the vendor to be reviewed, signed and returned.
  3. Once the NDA has been returned to IDOT, a conference call will be setup with the vendor to discuss the approval process and the specific technical requirements of the XML transfer.
  4. IDOT will work with the vendor to implement the requirements and will assist with the testing of the vendor's XML submittals.
  5. Once the vendor has successfully completed the testing of its XML transfer, it will be added as an approved Third Party XML Vendor.

If you have any questions about submitting crash reports electronically, please contact us at, DOT.XMLSUPPORT@ILLINOIS.GOV. We look forward to working with you.

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT), Division of Traffic Safety is the Administrator of the state's traffic crash information, as set forth in the Illinois Compiled Statutes: 625 ILCS 5/11‐401. As Administrator, IDOT is required to (1) tabulate and analyze motor vehicle crash reports, and (2) ensure that every crash report is submitted on an appropriate form approved or provided by IDOT. Since 2001, there have been only two crash reporting forms approved by the Department: the paper SR 1050 Illinois Traffic Crash Report form, and the electronic‐based Mobile Capture and Reporting (MCR) form. Recently, a third format for submitting crash reports to IDOT has been approved: submitting via an XML format defined by IDOT.
