Traffic Safety Information System (TSIS) Strategic Plan 2014-2019
This document presents the Alabama Traffic Safety Information Systems (TSIS) Strategic Plan for the 2014-2019 time period, or planning horizon. It begins by providing context in terms of the overall background and history of the planning process over the past decade. Alabama’s Traffic Safety Information System (TSIS) components include all of the hardware, software and data needed to generate information that impacts either the frequency or the severity of traffic crashes. Just the definition of these various files and systems is an enormous project, and the problems involved in coordinating the inter-agency activities to support safety decision-making create serious issues in every state. The large number of agencies involved at both the state and local levels include a wide range of activities throughout the traffic safety community, including collection, editing, forwarding, data entry, processing and the distribution of generated information.
