Traffic Records User Conference Hosted by LATRCC with assistance of HSRG

October 1, 2017

Baton Rouge - The Louisiana Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (LATRCC) recently hosted the 2017 Traffic Records User Conference on October 19, 2017 with the assistance of the Highway Safety Research Group. Previously the HSRG’s LACRASH User Luncheon, the HSRG worked with the LATRCC to expand the day-long conference to include more highway safety data systems and users across the state. At the day-long conference, highway safety researchers, public health officials, emergency responders, traffic engineers and other traffic records users gathered at the LSU Business Education Complex to discuss various research studies, safety projects and improvements throughout Louisiana. Presentations included a report from the state crime lab on emerging drugs of abuse and impairment trends, the importance of data quality, updates on LADRIVING (the state’s electronic DWI arrest reporting system) and a discussion regarding upcoming TRCC projects and trainings.
