Pre Conference - 44rd Governors Conference on Highway Safety | Grand Geneva Resort | Tuesday, 21. August 2018

Pre Conference Day
Pre-Conference day is a prelude event to the Governor’s Conference. We provide the opportunity for a variety of traffic safety partners to host an event during this day for their specific traffic safety discipline. The Pre-Conference events are free and open to the public. Please note that each workshop/event has specific requirements for registration and accommodation available. Please contact the assigned representative of each workshop in the workshop details list below.
Crash Forms Training 10-12pm & 1-3pm
Note: Both sessions cover the same topics. Register for one session only.
The new crash forms (DT4000, DT3480 and DT4002) have been in effect for over 16 months and the crash database project teams have made over 500 changes and updates to improve them. These improvements were made in response to both internal and external stakeholder’s feedback. Thank you for all your feedback in improving the crash forms. Due to these changes and the need for opportunities for training, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Bureau of Transportation Safety (BOTS) - Crash Records Unit (CRU) team will provide hands-on demonstrations to train Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) and departmental representatives on the updates to the crash forms. If possible, please bring your own laptop with Test TraCS version installed in order to participate in the hands-on training. Thank you again for all your help. See you all soon.
Please contact Crash Records Unit (CRU) at for any question about this event.
