Each year the Association of Transportation Safety Information Professionals recognizes exemplary state and federal projects that are intended to improve the timeliness, accuracy or accessibility of traffic safety data.  We also look for projects that are good examples of implementation of new technology or which demonstrate the use of traffic safety data in problem identification, project management or project evaluation.  Projects were recognized during the 2004 Traffic Records Forum.
