The 2010 notification of reporting requirements for Photographic Traffic Signal Enforcement Systems and Municipal Reporting of Traffic Crashes was published in the Texas Register on Friday, July 2, 2010. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is requesting that each municipality subject to the requirements contained in Transportation Code, §707.004 provide the required data to the department no later than October 29, 2010 in order for the department to meet the mandated deadline for an annual report to the Texas Legislature.
Pursuant to Transportation Code, §707.004, each municipality operating a photographic traffic signal enforcement system or planning to install such a system must compile and submit to TxDOT certain statistical information. Before installing such a system, the municipality is required to submit a written report on the number and type of traffic crashes that have occurred at the intersection over the last 18 months prior to installation. The municipality is also required to provide annual reports after installation showing the number and type of crashes that have occurred at the intersection.
The annual report of the information should be submitted to the department by December 1 of each year.
TxDOT has created a web page detailing municipal reporting requirements and to allow the required data to be submitted electronically:
