TZD Safe Roads Coalition Fatality Review Committee

Each TZD Safe Roads Coalition must establish a Fatality Review Committee (FRC) to review every fatal crash in their area. The purpose of the FRC is to identify trends that contributed to the crashes and the resulting fatalities. The FRC will identify how the fatal crashes could have been avoided and identify what actions may be taken to prevent similar types of crashes.

It also makes greater use of research and evaluation studies that point to the activities and best practices for the greatest impact in reducing traffic deaths and serious crashes.
