Policy Position on General Information Technology

AAMVA believes that the establishment of an objective systems support and evaluation capability, and the initiation of a coordinated approach to the exchange of information and assistance among the jurisdictions should be a high priority.  

AAMVA believes that each member jurisdiction should have a central repository of records, which includes—but, is not limited to—information on crashes, arrests, convictions, and written warnings. Such records should be available on a round-the-clock basis to all law enforcement agencies throughout the jurisdiction. 

Our Association supports compulsory reporting of all traffic crashes. Such reports should be made to a central bureau for analysis and use in crash prevention, driver improvement, highway design, and other highway safety applications, subject to safeguards for protection of privacy.
