MANAGING TRAFFIC RECORDS SYSTEMS THROUGH MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS

Traditionally, traffic records systems have been defined as management information systems for highway safety programming. In fact, they are also massive operating systems concerned with products, revenue collection, and record maintenance. Highway safety management information is often a secondary concern. Managing these operating systems requires smaller management information systems whose data serve to support, control, define, and analyze the operations of the major traffic records systems. Although these smaller management information systems have not been traditionally thought of within the context of the traffic records system, their success or failure may have consequences for the success or failure of the traffic records system and the entire highway safety programming effort. These small support systems serve to ensure the timely creation and updating of the traffic records systems with quality data. They also serve to ensure performance of basic functions, thereby permitting greater management time and attention to highway safety programming.
