Feasibility of Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation in Texas
MetadataShow full item record
A study was conducted to determine whether or not the State of Texas should establish Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation (MDAI) teams to investigate vehicle accidents in the State. Procedures and benefits of Federal MDAI teams and teams in other states were examined. What accident data were presently available within Texas was determined, together with present and possible uses for such data. It was concluded that no valid requirement exists for State MDAI teams and that they would not contribute materially to improving traffic safety in Texas. It is recommended that MDAI teams not be established but that the State organize and establish an accident data review board to analyze traffic accident data published each year by the Department of Public Safety Statistical Services Bureau and to recommend actions that should be taken as a result of the analysis.
