The TRIP is currently leveraging Administrative Office of the Courts, Department of Licensing, Washington State Patrol, Department of Transportation, and Department of Health data to look in depth at how vehicle crashes impact the public health and public safety of Washington state residents. Through this linkage, TRIP can incorporate data for each stage of a crash, and the events occurring thereafter – from the roadway, to the crash, to police interaction, and to court interaction.
