Blue Lake Casino & Hotel, 777 Casino Way, Blue Lake, CA.
UC Berkeley SafeTREC and the National Indian Justice Center (NIJC) are providing a free "Tribal Road Safety: Data Collection & Reporting" training session to provide hands on access to the online Tribal Crash Data Tool and to provide training on how to use the online data tool reports to support transportation safety planning.
This training will also provide information about the next steps in the project which are to train tribes on crash data collection strategies. As tribes collect more local crash data, SafeTREC and NIJC would like to collaborate on how to include that data in the online data tool or SWITRS. This session is free, but you must register to attend. Access the registration form for more details. Deadline to register is Monday, August 12, 2019.
The Tribal Crash Data Tool
The Tribal Crash Data Online Tool is the product of a collaboration between SafeTREC and the National Indian Justice Center (NIJC). The project is designed to prevent traffic collisions and injuries by gathering accurate traffic and crash data on and near tribal lands. This project provides a starting point for California tribes to access and analyze tribal crash data from existing sources. In the long term, as tribes collect their own crash data, this online tool may be modified to incorporate tribal data.
This workshop is part of the work UC Berkeley SafeTREC conducts to advance tribal road safety. Learn more about our tribal road safety programs and tools.
