MARYLAND TRAFFIC RECORDS MISSION

The mission of the Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (TRCC) is to coordinate all traffic records system components (crash, roadway, citation/adjudication, driver, vehicle, injury surveillance) using data quality performance measures (timeliness, completeness, accuracy, accessibility, integration, uniformity) in an effort to advance the Maryland traffic safety community.

PURPOSE

The Maryland Traffic Records Forum provides an opportunity to bring together traffic records partners from throughout the state to share their experiences in supporting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vision in promoting a comprehensive, efficient traffic records system. A high quality State traffic records system is critical to traffic safety programing, operational management, and strategic planning.

Maryland’s Forum will convene traffic records professionals from the core traffic records disciplines (crash, driver, vehicle, roadway, citation and adjudication, and injury surveillance) to share and discuss their experiences, innovations, studies, and concerns to help build the bridges to making Maryland’s system structurally sound and the best that it can be. Specifically this Forum will:

  • Share the broad scope of the traffic records system and Traffic Records Coordinating Council in Maryland, allowing partners to understand facilitators and barriers as they may be presented regarding their position within that System.
  • Understand needs and benefits of data integration
  • Learn about policies and challenges of accessing data from within the data records system
  • Introduce new, innovative approaches to conduct geospatial analyses and display
