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.
