Highway Safety Data
Maryland’s Traffic Records Program
The Traffic Records Program of the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration’s Highway Safety Office maintains a comprehensive statewide traffic record system. The data provides reliable, accurate, and timely information to manage and evaluate safety programs. Among the data collected are crash, roadway, citation, driver licensing, vehicle registration, commercial motor vehicle, emergency medical and trauma information.
All activities, from enforcement to education, rely on data. The MVA’s Highway Safety Office provides the data to support programs that help reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities. The system relies on the help of state and federal agencies, grantees, and partners to collect, maintain, and analyze the traffic data. The Traffic Records Coordinating Committee is a cooperative group of state agencies responsible for the management and use of traffic safety data.
Data is the key to the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration’s Highway Safety Office’s programs and the Strategic Highway Safety Plan. The accurate collection and timely dissemination of information is critical to the safety of all who use Maryland’s roadways.
The Maryland Traffic Records Coordinating Committee is comprised of three sub-groups, the Executive Council, the Technical Council, and the Sub-Committees. The sub groups administer the Traffic Records Strategic Plan and their executive charter was approved on May 29, 2014.
On May 29, 2014, a Maryland Traffic Forum was held in Linthicum, Maryland.
