A national grid reference system used to locate accident sites allows for interface with similar systems. The five linked computer programs used to retrieve specific kinds of data are described and sample printouts are included. The system imposes standard road safety criteria over the entire county, thereby pinpointing, on a priority basis, those areas which are inherently hazardous and in need of control measures and those which require maintenance attention. by including data on vehicle flow, the system can also perform time comparisons and forecast, to some extent, points of potential danger. A summary of system cost, staff time, and computer time is provided.
