TRAFFIC ACCIDENT REPORTING IN KENTUCKY

This study reviews the organizational stucture and processing procedures used in accident surveillance. Consideration was given to the techniques that various governmental agencies use in their analysis of accident reports and statistics. It was concluded that Kentucky should enact uniform accident reporting legislations. A standard form should be prescribed for use by law enforcement agencies in complying with the reporting requirement. The creation of an Accident Records Unit to receive, process, and statistically analyze the reports is recommended.
