NJDHTS – NJTR-1 Crash Form Refresher (In-person)

  • May 25, 2023
  • 8:00 am–1:00 pm

Course Description:

This course provides refresher training for law enforcement officials already familiar with the NJTR-1 crash form.

Your safety colleagues rely on accurate crash data to create successful, proactive road safety plans. However, many of the nearly 300,000 crash reports NJDOT receives each year contain errors or misinformation–these inaccuracies negatively impact the effectiveness of data-driven crash reduction efforts. As the official recorder of crash scene events, you can minimize these data deficiencies with the information learned from this training course.

This course covers common NJTR-1 errors for both passenger and commercial motor vehicle (CMV) crashes and offers methods to improve crash data quality. Crash analysis software functions and the role of data in crash analysis will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Three important purposes of the NJTR-1 Crash Form
  2. Two common crash location errors
  3. Three ways to determine if a CMV should be listed in the CMV section of the form
  4. Three new crash fields on the NJTR-1

Intended Audience:

Law enforcement and crash analysts
