CDC MV PICCS Widget

Posted by on June 10th, 2019 Posted in: Public Health


The new CDC MV PICCS widget can help states find effective strategies to reduce injuries, deaths, and costs from motor vehicle crashes. MV PICCS stands for Motor Vehicle Prioritizing Interventions and Cost Calculator for States.

How MV PICCS Widget Can Help

The widget provides each state with:

A summary of which of the 14 evidence-based interventions are currently being used and the ones that could be implemented.
• An overview of the potential benefits of strategies not currently being implemented.
• Information about each intervention such as:

  • number of lives that could be saved,
  • number of injuries that could prevented,
  • monetary benefit, and
  • cost to implement.

• An interactive map to compare and find out what other states are doing.

Check out the interactive and easy-to-use widget here and click on the widget’s embed button to get the code.
