The office of operations, in collaboration with the department, the police department and any other appropriate agencies identified by the mayor, shall conduct a study of driving behavior to identify specific behaviors indicating a pattern of dangerous driving associated with traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities. As part of such study the department shall analyze data including, but not limited to: hit-and-run police reports; convictions for traffic-related violations or crimes, including convictions pursuant to section 1212 of the vehicle and traffic law and section 19-190; MV104AN crash reports attributing dangerous conduct to the driver; driving activity of vehicles registered to people with suspended or revoked licenses; and, to the extent feasible, motor vehicle insurance information. Within one year of the effective date of this section, the office of operations shall submit to the council and post on its official website a report on the indicators of dangerous driving identified by such study and the office of operations’ recommendations for reducing dangerous driving. Each year thereafter, the office of operations shall submit to the council and post on its official website a report on any interventions undertaken by any agency with respect to dangerous driving and any increases or decreases in patterns of dangerous driving in the prior year.
