PROCEEDINGS: NINTH INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON TRAFFIC RECORDS SYSTEMS ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA JULY 18-21, 1983

The Ninth International Forum on Traffic Records Systems has as its objective the promotion of information interchange among those who operate or use traffic records systems in support of highway safety programs. The principal disciplines represented by those who attended were law enforcement, motor vehicle administration, traffic engineering, and public health. Among the new developments discussed at the 1983 Forum and presented in these Proceedings was the increasing use of microcomputers to make more effective use of the various kinds of data in traffic records systems. The need to link data files to increase their usefulness, and the obstacles to such linkage, were also discussed. One problem which was highlighted was the impact of budget-imposed reductions in police accident reporting on traffic engineering efforts to identify and correct hazardous highway segments or features.
