Alabama's Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (TRCC) is charged with the responsibility to coordinate all of the hardware, software and data needed to generate information that impacts either the frequency or the severity of traffic crashes. This involves a large number of agencies involved at both the state and local levels that engage in a wide range of activities throughout the traffic safety community, including collection, editing, forwarding, data entry, processing and distribution of information. More recently the impact of case management systems have come within the purview of the state TRCC.
Examples of these include the citation, which begins with the issuance of an electronic citation and proceeds through the court system to ultimately impact the driver history record. TRCC coordination activities involve the areas of crash records, emergency response and other medical records, traffic citations, roadway characteristics (construction, maintenance, traffic volumes, etc.), driver history, vehicle history and other demographic data.
