V13: Direction of Travel Before Crash

Definition:

The direction of a motor vehicle’s travel on the roadway before the crash. Notice that this is not a compass direction, but a direction consistent with the designated direction of the road. For example, the direction of a state designated North-South highway must be either Northbound or Southbound even though a motor vehicle may have been traveling due east as a result of a short segment of the highway having an East-West orientation.
