IADLEST and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) have established a one of kind partnership that began in October 2015 with the Texas Data Driven Approaches to Crime and Traffic Safety (DDACTS) project. Beginning October 2018, the Truck and Bus Traffic Enforcement Training Project began and will run concurrently with the ongoing DDACTS project in Texas. This unique collaborative endeavor is designed to provide law enforcement officials with a holistic approach to assist TxDOT with its on-going efforts to increase public safety by reducing crashes and other social harms throughout the state.
