GEORGIA TRAFFIC RECORDS STUDY: PART I. DEVELOPING THE RECORDS SYSTEM: PART II. CATALOG OF INPUTS AND OUTPUTS: PART III. IMPLEMENTING THE RECORDS PROGRAM

This study is to outline what has to be done to make Georgia traffic records meet new requirements imposed by the U. S. Department of Transportation, and to function more effectively for the citizens of the state. Four priorities were recommended: (1) A single accident report system requiring agreement among users of accident data in need and form. A uniform citation system which starts with designing a 5-copy form suitable for use by all police in the state. Standardized and simplified identification codes for drivers, vehicles, and road locations must be established soon. Continue development of machine data processing for driver, vehicle, and road records, but begin at once to think about what is involved in adjusting to new records procedures and program requirements. (2) Require proof of recent inspection for registration of a motor vehicle. Distribute registration renewal throughout the year. Develop on-line, direct-access replies to inquiries relating to status of drivers and vehicles. (3) Coordinate name files for licensing and registration. Combine licensing records of vehicle inspectors, driver instructors, ambulance attendants and chemical test technicians with driver license records. Provide for systematic purging of all files on regular basis. Provide reasonable "Dead" storage for documents which have been transcribed for machine processing. (4) Begin preparing systematic yearly inventories and recapitulations of changes. Summarized are proposed changes for the motor vehicle code. (MW)
