National Tribal Transportation Conference: Tribal Road Safety Data Project

October 20, 2016

Co-director David Ragland attended the National Tribal Transportation Conference (NTTC) on October 4, 2016 and presented SafeTREC's Tribal Road Safety Data Project. In the initial phase of this project, traffic collisions in and around tribal areas were identified via the statewide traffic crash database for California (Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System, or SWITRS). In the second phase, to be conducted in conjunction with the National Indian Justice Center (NIJC), development of the “Tribal Road Safety Tool” is under way. This tool will allow individual tribes to analyze SWITRS data relevant to their specific tribal area, add data from tribal police and/or first responders, and conduct analyses for improving road safety, including securing funding for that purpose. Learn more about our Tribal Road Safety Data Project.
