Electronic Data Transfer (EDT) is a method for states to voluntarily electronically submit their crash data to the US Department of Transportation (US DOT). The session will initiate with a brief discussion of what EDT is and how it can be used to improve communication between the State and US DOT. Washington State’s Traffic and Safety Commission’s Research and Data Division will discuss how EDT has been used and why the state decided to support this communication platform with NHTSA and US DOT. The State will discuss ongoing improvements to the data use and integration processes within the operational components. The presentation will conclude with a showcase of States currently supporting EDT or planning on implementation.
