Emphasis Area 9: Traffic Records
Traffic safety data is the primary source of information about the environment, human behavior, and vehicle performance in a crash; therefore, the availability of timely, accurate, complete, uniform, integrated, and accessible traffic safety data is required to address safety problems and program limited resources. The effectiveness of informed decision making requires sound research, programs and policies, and is directly dependent on data availability and quality. Delaware’s Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (TRCC) is the primary point of leadership, planning, policy setting, and accountability for Delaware’s safety data. The TRCC was established in 2000 and continues to meet on a regular basis to coordinate projects and actions among state agencies and to commit the resources necessary for the integration and sharing of safety-related data.
