When free form data entry is used to enter the street names for the crash location, misspelled names can be entered. This process automates correcting these incorrectly spelled street names. There are two times this process can be implemented, at import or from the Streets Manager Utility. At least one import must be completed prior to starting the automated process. This is to get a list of streets from the database.
