Traffic Crash Data/ALIS

Transportation Council
Eoin Wrafter, Commissioner


The Accident Location Information System (ALIS) is a statewide database of vehicle crashes collected from two sources:

  • Traffic and Criminal Software, or TraCS, which many police agencies have installed in their patrol cars, and
  • NYSDMV accident report forms (Form MV-104). 

ALIS allows users to search for crash data based on location, date, or other characteristics, and summarize the data in various report formats. ALIS was developed by the New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT), NYSDMV, and the NYS Office of Cyber Security and Critical Infrastructure Coordination (CSCIC).

Currently, access to ALIS is restricted to State agencies, MPO's (such as the Dutchess County Transportation Council), and relevant County agencies.

The Dutchess CountyTtransportation Council (DCTC) can provide local crash data on a case-by-case basis. To request crash data, please contact us by phone at (845) 486-3600 or use our Automated Response System:
