What is this Indicator?  This indicator shows the average weekday daily vehicle miles traveled (VMT).
Why this is important?  Vehicle miles traveled (VMT) indicates the demand on county roads and freeways. Areas with higher numbers of vehicle miles traveled tend to have an increased number of motor vehicle, bicycle and pedestrian crashes as well as injuries and fatalities. Increased vehicle miles traveled lead to increased vehicle emitted pollutants, hence increased air pollution and greenhouse gas emission which contributes to cardiovascular mortality rates and respiratory disease.
Technical Note:  Miles are reported by ODOT on the "URL of Source" as "thousands of miles" traveled; this measure has been converted to "millions of miles" traveled.
