- overseeing the development and update of a strategic plan that serves the public and private sector needs for traffic safety information,
- learning about technologies and other advancements necessary to improve the traffic safety information system,
- promoting, supporting and assisting in the coordination and implementation of needed or desired system improvements and,
- providing a forum for the exchange of information regarding safety data among the traffic safety community.
The Maryland TRCC is comprised of three sub-groups who are responsible for the overarching administration of the Traffic Records Strategic Plan. The three sub-groups include the following: Executive Council, Technical Council, and Sub-Committees.
