As of May 2021, CDOR is now requiring all CO agencies to submit their crash data using the new dr3447 report format. Pd' Programming has identified a discrepancy in the new Road Description field codes. This article addresses that discrepancy.
The State of Arizona provides access to their crash data through a Citrix (remote desktop) portal. In order to download data, a user must log in to a Citrix remote desktop; access the ACIS website; and initiate a download of the data to your local computer.
Note: This document is provided as-is. Pd’ Programming does not have special knowledge of or direct access to the ACIS system. We have captured the screens below with the assistance of a local agency that does have access. Please follow any instructions provided by the DOT.
Colorado has adopted a new crash report form DR 3447. As agencies slowly move over to the new form, we will be updating Crash Magic with a new configuration to match.
This article is for our Arizona clients who are using the DOT's ALISS / ACIS system for their Crash Magic database.
With the redesign of the ADOT crash form some fields were preserved, and others were removed or consolidated. During this process, new lookup values were added to ADOT's database to standardize and accommodate for the changes to the form. ADOT will not be converting old data to match with the new format, some fields and or values could be blank. ADOT's internal database lookup values DO NOT MATCH with the current crash form.

In Texas, crash data is available to agencies through the CRIS data system. By following the steps included here, you can download and unzip data files suitable for import into Crash Magic. You also have the option to FTP the data to our servers rather than using the browser interface. That process is described at the bottom of this article.
Arizona DOT provides data to jurisdictions to use with Crash Magic. If you would like to request this data, you will need request access and fill out a contract with the DOT, that information is provided below.
Georgia DOT has a crash database managed by Lexis Nexus that can be accessed by any jurisdiction in Georgia. You will need to request access, and fill out a user agreement in order to receive a login and password.

The State of Colorado has created a new form for reporting crashes. The new form is in effect as of 7/1/2006. This article describes changes that have occured that will probably affect your use of crash data in Intersection Magic.
The California Highway Patrol (CHP) maintains the crash records that you use as SWITRS data. In January of 1998 they modified the format which had been used for many years. The format was changed to add the century to any dates in the data file. This makes the data y2k compatible. This requires special treatment of SWITRS data by Intersection Magic.
