HATS SAFETY APP:

This GIS-based application takes publicly available data from PennDOT’s Pennsylvania Crash Information Tool (PCIT) and puts it in a format that can be easily visualized and analyzed. It includes filters such as county, year, or accidents involving attributes such as aggressive driving, speeding, alcohol, deer, heavy trucks, fatalities, serious injuries, etc. Click image to open:

TRAFFIC INCIDENT MANAGEMENT:

 

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, Traffic Incident Management (TIM) consists of a planned and coordinated multi-disciplinary process to detect, respond to and clear traffic incidents so that traffic flow may be restored as safely and quickly as possible.

Effective TIM planning reduces the duration and impacts of traffic incidents; improves the safety of motorists, crash victims and emergency responders; and reduces the frequency of secondary crashes.

TCRPC works with its partners to promote and coordinate TIM teams in South-Central PA. The goal of these teams is to allow for a consistent opportunity for first responders, transportation officials and other key stakeholders to engage with each other to foster cooperation, build relationships, share knowledge and sharpen responder skills and knowledge.

We directly support two TIM teams:

  • A Beltway Cumberland/Dauphin (ABCD) team primarily focuses on the Capital Beltway and major corridors surrounding the City of Harrisburg.

  • The Greater Lebanon / Hershey team primarily focuses on the southeastern edge of Dauphin County, near Derry Township and the greater City of Lebanon area. This team is run by the Lebanon County Metropolitan Planning Organization (LEBCO MPO).

 

We currently hold monthly TIM team meetings to discuss current issues and keep the region’s responders and transportation officials informed. See link above for videos.

If you’re interested in participating in the meetings or being added to the distribution list, please email Kyle Snyder or Steve Deck
