Louisiana witnesses its fair share of car accidents every year. With a growing number of vehicles on the street, the probability of an auto accident also increases. As such, law enforcement agencies and personnel are always on the lookout to develop better methods of traffic control along with enhanced safety measures to reduce car accidents.
Among recent innovations developed to aid the Louisiana police force, the LACRASH software system developed by the Louisiana State University's Highway Safety Research Group is worthy of note. This new system enables officers to bypass the crash report paper form by reproducing an electronic version which they can fill in from a laptop stored in their patrol car or from a desktop at their office.
