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.

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.
