Do you have a question about the HSM?

Do you wonder how other states are implementing the program?

Do you want to know whether the HSM makes a difference?

Then the HSM User Discussion Forum is for you. The Forum allows HSM practitioners to query each other regarding the implementation or use of the HSM. The information, which is available to the public, also allows users to share their experiences and learn from one another. To post questions, you will need to register for a user name and password, which can be done on the User Discussion Forum page. Just click on Register. The forum is monitored to make sure questions are answered in a timely fashion.

  • Crash Severity Levels;
  • Data Needs and Management ;
  • Human Factors ;
  • Network Screening Methods and Data Preparation;
  • Diagnosis and Selection of Countermeasures;
