The Indiana Traffic-Accident Record System represents a major statewide effort and is being developed to geographically locate accidents on road segments anywhere in the state. When completed, the system will provide a procedure for analyzing accident rates and ther relation to physical roadway conditions. The results will be used to identify critical accident locations and conditions that cause accidents. The system is founded on a geopraphic data base that allows automatic assignment of X-Y coordinated to all coded accidents. The process requires anly simple information commonly coded on accident forms. Because of its unique design, it provides a comprehensive system capable of efficient and meaningful analysis of coded accident information. Roadway sections, intersections, corridors, and geographic areas can be examined over any specified period of time for a complete accident history. Accidents can be identified by type, precise location, or any other descriptive related with roadway characterics, jurisdiction, and federal-aid classification.
