BOTS collaborates with the UW Traffic Operations and Safety Laboratory (UW TOPS Lab) to maintain
Community Maps. This tool was designed to assist local communities in understanding the driver behaviors in their communities.
Community Maps is an interactive, statewide map of all police reported traffic motor vehicle crashes from 2010 to the current year. Fatal crashes are included from 2001. Crashes are updated on a nightly basis using geo-coded locations from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation DT4000 police crash report.
Traffic Safety Commissions
Community Maps also maintains resources for the state's Traffic Safety Commissions (TSCs). Each county must host quarterly TSC meetings to discuss the fatal/injury crashes and traffic safety issues in their county. The TSC members are from multiple areas of expertise, including law enforcement, public health and engineering. The groups come together to focus on the four Es of traffic safety: Enforcement, Education, Engineering, and Emergency Medical Services.
More information about the TSCs, including meeting dates, crash data, and resources, can be found on the
TSC tab of the Community Maps website and in the
TSC guidelines document.
