ATSIP, the Association of Transportation Safety Information Professionals, is the leading advocate for improving the quality and use of transportation safety information, often called ‘traffic records.’ Our activities are supported by governments, academic and professional associations, and private sector partners.
ATSIP’s membership consists of professionals from local, state and federal government agencies, including Departments of Transportation, Public Safety, and Highway Safety Offices, as well as law enforcement agencies, private sector professionals, and partners from academia and university research centers
ATSIP aspires to be the International Traffic Records Coordinating Committee – promoting sound policies, models, practices and technology to produce widely available high-quality traffic records data and information used for effective safety policy-making and program implementation.
To improve the quality of traffic records – to make them timely, accurate, consistent, complete, accessible, and integrated – and to encourage their use to select, implement and evaluate safety programs and policies throughout the world.
To provide a forum for communicating traffic records improvement strategies among all interested disciplines, organizations, and governments and to use its combined expertise to recommend strategies, standards, policies and programs.
ATSIP’s organization consists of an executive Board and professional members. Its activities are supported by governments, academic and professional associations, and private sector partners.
ATSIP's objectives include:
- Promote the exchange of information about traffic safety data issues (new research, technological advances and techniques, etc) to the Board, ATSIP members and our partners in the transportation safety information systems arena.
- Serve as a resource to state Traffic Records Coordinating Committees (TRCC).
- Provide managers and users of highway safety information with the resources needed to select appropriate technology to support their information needs.
- To serve as an expert resource reference regarding the implementation of technical standards for characteristics of highway safety information systems that are critical to the development and management of transportation safety programs and policies.
