Crash Location Tool: Recording and analyzing crash information
Sharon Hawkins of the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) will discuss AHTD's Crash Location Tool, which provides the Department with a convenient way for law enforcement across the state to enter log mile locations and roadway information when recording crash information. The simple methodology and easy to use Google Earth format makes AHTD's crash location database more accurate and safety analysis more precise. AHTD is also using an Incident Analyst tool to locate crash event Hot Spots/Crash Densities, Repeat Incident locations and produce finished maps and graphs that provide a quick, complete visual aid of the tabular crash data.
