An important key to hitting our 10-year target of “Safest – smartest – made to last” and our 5-year priority to grow innovation is being able to collect and utilize reliable and consistent data. We continue to refine the data we collect, how it is stored and how it interacts to make help drive decisions that improve the safety and mobility of travelers in our state.
Peggi Knight, director of the Research and Analytics Bureau, co-leads the Data Management Committee which is made up of transportation professionals from many different disciplines. She said, “We treat data as an asset that must be managed to be as effective as possible. The goal is to understand the data we have, its format, storage, and interaction.”
