Georgia’s traffic records system consists of data about the state’s roadway transportation network and the people and vehicles that use it. This data is critical to effective safety programming, operational management, and strategic planning. Georgia’s traffic records system includes the collection, management, and analysis of traffic safety data. It is comprised of six core data systems— Crash, Driver, Vehicle, Roadway, Citation and Adjudication, and Injury Surveillance—as well as the organizations and people responsible for them.
Georgia’s Traffic Records Program works to ensure that complete, accurate, and timely traffic safety data is collected, analyzed, and made available for data-driven decision-making at the national, State, and local levels. Analyzing reliable and accurate traffic records data is central to identifying traffic safety problems; developing and evaluating effective countermeasures; and efficiently allocating resources to reduce injuries and deaths in Georgia caused by crashes.
