Highway Safety - Traffic Records
About Our Program
The Utah Traffic Records Advisory Committee is a multidisciplinary, interagency committee created to develop, promote and implement the Utah Traffic Safety Information Systems Strategic Plan. The mission of UTRAC is to provide more timely, accurate, complete, uniform, integrated and accessible data to the traffic safety community. The committee structure is a three level tier design. The top level is the Executive Committee, then the Technical Board, then Working Groups for specific projects. Members of these committees are representative of the six departments that have custodial rights over the traffic safety information systems. They are Department of Technology Services, Department of Public Safety, Department of Transportation, Department of Health, Utah Tax Commission and Administrative Office of the Courts.
The role and function of the Utah Traffic Records Advisory Committee (UTRAC) includes:
- Review and approve the Utah Traffic Safety Information Systems Strategic Plan;
- Review Utah’s highway safety data and traffic records systems;
- Provide a forum for the discussion of highway safety data and traffic records issues;
- Report any highway safety data and traffic records issues to the agencies and organizations in Utah that create, maintain and use highway safety data and traffic records;
- Consider and coordinate the views of organizations in Utah that are involved in the administration, collection and use of the highway safety data and traffic records system;
- Represent the interests of the agencies and organizations within the traffic records system to outside organizations; and
- Review and evaluate new technologies to keep the highway safety data and traffic records systems up-to-date.
- Traffic Records Program Goal
- The goal of the Traffic Records Program is to identify deficiencies in current traffic record Information systems; prioritize needs and sets goals for improvement; establishes benchmarks and identify performance measures that can monitor progress of goals; itemize specific projects designed to address the identified needs and goals; and specify how current funds, as well as 408 funds, will be used to implement the projects.
As of July 1, 2013, agencies are required to submit crash reports electronically. The DI-9 manual is under revision to better reflect these recent legislative changes.
