After several generations, we have got now a unified system named << BAAC ~ file (Bulletin d'Analyse des Accidents Corporels). Every police brigade has to create a new BAAC record for any accident with injured or killed people.

The new generation of theses programs is called CONCERTO. It opens new doors to improve our << safety diagnosis ~
