Roadway Safety and Traffic Records

Roadway Safety programs concentrate on the vehicle operating environment and are strongly influenced by enforcement, engineering, and utilizing relevant data generated by those activities to improve roadway safety and traffic records. OTS advocates efforts to automate traffic collision database systems and the ability to analyze and map high-collision locations. Grant-funded items include hardware, software, and expert services necessary to aid in the automation of manual processes, eliminate process duplication, and facilitate enhanced data gathering and data sharing.

ROADWAY SAFETY AND TRAFFIC RECORDS PROGRAM AREA GOALS

  • To replace manual input databases or paper files, allowing traffic engineers access to extensive collision analysis tools, automated standard reports, and mapping of collision locations

2018 PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

COUNTYWIDE COLLISION DATA COLLECTION, REPORTING, AND ANALYSIS STANDARDIZATION

Solano Transportation Authority
Commencing in FFY 2017, this project developed a countywide Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with all 7 incorporated cities and the County to create a standardized collision reporting and analysis database. Grant funds provided software, installation, and training for the police departments and public works departments at each of the participating cities. The completed database allows for real-time collision entries from each police department, enabling public works departments to conduct timely, relevant analysis and prescribe safety solutions. The countywide nature of the database allows for sharing of data to cross city boundaries and allows for collaboration in the prioritization of resources for safety improvements to reduce fatalities, injuries, and property damage. This system will be used as a valuable tool to identify, analyze, and seek funding to address safety concerns for Solano County and its cities.
