BRIEF DESCRIPTION

The FHWA Every Day Counts Round 4 Innovation, Using Data to Improve Traffic Incident Management (EDC4 TIM Data), is working with more than 30 States to advance collection, analysis, and use of traffic incident data. Incident data and analysis can improve safety programming, operations management, and strategic planning to reduce the likelihood of crashes, and reduce secondary crashes that involve incident responders. During this webinar, you will hear firsthand from three agencies that actively collect, analyze, and use TIM data. These speakers will share the ways in which they use this information and the value they have derived from it to improve TIM and responder safety. This interactive webinar will allow participants an opportunity to ask questions of the presenters and participate in relevant polling questions.
