HSRG Staff Travels to Milwaukee

8/20/2018

BATON ROUGE - From August 12 to 15, many of our staff members travelled to Milwaukee, WI to participate in the Association of Transportation Safety Information Professionals’ annual Traffic Records Forum. While at the Forum, staff members led roundtable discussions and presented on numerous topics that highlighted the HSRG’s work including, crash data visualization and spatial analysis of crashes. HSRG staff members also toured a local Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network (CIREN) Center at a local university and had the privilege of watching one of their crash tests.
