The Fatal Supplement form is required whenever there is a traffic crash resulting in a fatality. The death must occur within 30 days of the crash to be considered a traffic fatality. This form replaces the paper MV3480 Fatal Supplement Form when submitted as part of a TraCS electronic crash report and is necessary to comply with the requirements of the federal Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS).

The Amended form is the same as the MV4000e, with the addition of a Document Number Override field. This field contains the original document number that is amended. The crash data from this form is also submitted to the DMV FTP server.

Pursuit form

Beginning January 1, 2018, law enforcement agencies began to use the TraCS Pursuit form to gather police pursuit data as required under Wisconsin Statute 85.07(8)(b). A “police pursuit" means an active attempt by a traffic officer in a police vehicle to apprehend one or more occupants of a moving motor vehicle, the operator of which is resisting apprehension by disregarding the officer's visual or audible signal to stop his or her vehicle, increasing the speed of the vehicle or extinguishing the lights of the vehicle. Completed Pursuit forms are then transmitted through TraCS, collected, and maintained by the Department of Transportation. Annual pursuit data for all Wisconsin law enforcement agencies is subsequently made available for traffic safety entities, law enforcement, legislators, and other interested parties.

Task form

The TraCS task form is a case management tool used to track tasks created during an investigation. The task form gives agency managers the ability to see the progression and completion of tasks by officers assigned to an investigation. These individual forms within a case can later be used to build an outline detailing who was involved in a case, what tasks they were assigned and completed, and when those tasks were done.

Vehicle Killed Wild Animal Permit

This form is used to provide legal ownership of a Deer, Bear or Wild Turkey carcass that was killed by a motor vehicle.

In order to use this form a TraCS user must have a DNR number assigned to them. Once filled out and validated the DNR report is printed then mailed to DNR or emailed to or can now be transmitted to the DNR.
