Maryland employs a two-tiered system Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (TRCC), with both Technical and Executive Councils. The members of the TRCC recognize the need for and the value of a high quality and responsive traffic safety information system to inform safety decisions, and to facilitate communication, coordination, cooperation and partnership among stakeholders. The traffic safety information system is critical to ensuring the most effective use of available resources. The purpose of the TRCC is to continually review and assess the status of Maryland’s traffic safety information system and its components. The TRCC oversees the development and periodic update of the Traffic Records Strategic Plan (TRSP) better serve the public and private sector needs for traffic safety information, to identify technologies and other advancements necessary to improve the system, and to support in the coordination and implementation of needed or desired system improvements.
The MHSO fully supports the TRCC through its own key staff and a grant-funded National Study Center’s Maryland Center for Traffic Safety Analysis (MCTSA) project, and participates on all levels of the TRCC. The MHSO is a member of the Crash Data Tri-Agency Council—consisting of the Maryland State Police, State Highway Administration, and Motor Vehicle Administration—which oversees policies and projects with regard to the crash data system. MHSO is also a member of the Automated Crash Reporting System (ACRS) Task Force, working cooperatively with technical and policy experts named by the Tri-Agency Council to oversee the continued improvements of Maryland’s newest electronic data system. The Tri-Agency Council and ACRS Task Force are subcommittees of the TRCC and aim to meet the priority objectives set forth in the TRSP.
