The traffic records are the key chain when planning, implementing, and evaluating the performance of our highway safety. The availability of reliable and up-to-date traffic data can help decision makers from all sectors and levels to make the long- and short-term changes towards reducing the number of crashes and lives impacted by them. With integrated data from different systems the possibilities of making better decisions increase.
The Traffic Records Coordinating Committee (TRCC) is responsible for improving the traffic records databases, the data analysis, and data availability in Puerto Rico. Their work is related to the six (6) traffic records systems (TRS):
