Argyll and Bute Council has invested in a new accident management and data analysis software system to help reduce the number of casualties and serious injuries on its roads.
The new system, MAAPcloud, has been developed by the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) to support local authorities, police forces and other road safety stakeholders in making road safety investment decisions.
The system utilises modern cloud-based technologies, with all data stored on secure remote servers with regular back-ups, alleviating concerns about security or updates.
MAAPcloud is being pioneered in Scotland by Arygll and Bute Council, and TRL anticipates that this will lead to the roll-out of the system across the country.
