INTRODUCTION TO COMPREHENSIVE COMPUTERIZED SAFETY RECORDKEEPING SYSTEMS

Public Law 98-363 provides for grants to the states for the establishment of "comprehensive computerized safety systems". A comprehensive computerized safety recordkeeping system or CCSRS is a state-administrered system comprised of computerized files of data on motor vehicle traffic accidents, drivers, vehicles and highways. The files, which are often administered by different agencies, are linked in a fashion that permits correlation of data from separate files. Such systems have been known among safety professionals for a number of years as state-wide integrated traffic records systems or, more often, simply as traffic records systems. This introduced material on safety recordkeeping was compiled at a workshop sponsored by TRB's Committee on traffic Records and Accident Analysis. It is intended to assist those officials directly involved in the administration of the safety recordkeeping grants who are not well-acquainted with computer systems or with the development of safety recordkeeping systems over the past two decades.
