Enhanced Traffic Records Electronic Data System

Knowledge is power. Virginia's Traffic Records Electronic Data System (TREDS) gives law enforcement and the Commonwealth citizens accessible and accurate information about where crashes are happening on the roadways around them for better safety decision-making. Since 2011, Virginia has been collecting, consolidating and tracking crash data. Now, new features allow users to not only track crashes, but tell them the type of crash and alert them to dangerous intersections and stretches of road. With that knowledge, law enforcement can target problem spots and drivers can be more aware what's going on around them.

Presenter: George W. Bishop IV, Deputy Commissioner, Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles

Virginia DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb will explain how Virginia brought together a diverse group of stakeholders, from the highway safety community, taxi and limousine industries, and TNCs, and created a regulatory framework that maintains safety for both TNC passengers and drivers.
