Crash Report Revision 

In 2017, a new set of minimum standards for collecting crash data was released to the states. This instigated the process of updating Utah’s crash report form, which has not been updated since 2006. Over the past decade, crash reporting has evolved and this update will not only enhance our data collection efforts, but also improve the quality of the data. As a result, transportation and public safety professionals along with law enforcement and other partners, will be able to strengthen their programs and identify countermeasures that will affect positive change on our roadways. 

Training Available 

Information on the revision is available upon request. On site training to your agency is also available.
