This bill requires the Department of Transportation (DOT) to create an automated system (DOT information system) for the electronic entry, retrieval, and exchange of data related to vehicular traffic accidents on highways and at intersections under the jurisdiction of political subdivisions of the State. Under the bill, the DOT is to oversee the development and maintenance of the DOT information system. Each political subdivision is to be afforded access to enter and retrieve data related to traffic accidents on highways or at intersections over which the political subdivision has jurisdiction. The political subdivisions are not to be required to bear any portion of the cost of administration, operation, development, or maintenance of the DOT information system. The DOT information system is to include the following data, organized by county: (1) The municipality in which the accident took place; (2) The highway on or intersection at which the accident took place; (3) The date of the accident; (4) The posted speed limit on the highway where the accident took place; (5) If at an intersection, the type of traffic control device located at the intersection; (6) Any fatality or injury resulting from the accident; (7) Any police report related to the accident; and (8) Any other information deemed useful by the DOT concerning vehicular traffic accidents. Under the bill, a political subdivision is required to, within 60 days of a vehicular traffic accident on a highway or at an intersection over which the political subdivision has jurisdiction, enter the aforementioned data into the DOT information system. If a vehicular traffic accident takes place on a highway or at an intersection over which multiple political subdivisions share jurisdiction, the political subdivision associated with the responding law enforcement agency is required to, within 60 days of the vehicular traffic accident, enter the data into the DOT information system. Lastly, the bill appropriates from the General Fund to the political subdivisions sums as may be necessary, as certified by the DOT, to fund the entry of data into and maintenance of data within the DOT information system.
