It's time for a fresh approach.
The ​Collaborative ​Sciences ​Center ​for ​Road ​Safety ​will ​accelerate ​progress ​in ​reducing ​transport ​injuries ​and ​fatalities ​by ​utilizing ​a ​systems ​approach ​to ​bring ​perspectives ​from ​planning, ​engineering, ​public ​health, ​data ​science ​and ​robotics ​to ​the ​road ​safety ​field.

CSCRS is an integrated national safety center focused on the goal of reducing injuries and saving lives on our roadway system. Moving forward to meet ambitious safety targets requires a rigorous, conceptually driven and focused research agenda.



Our goal to improve road safety in the U.S. depends on a successful, multidisciplinary approach to education and outreach. CSCRS will connect students and faculty across campuses with traditional and non-traditional partners alike.


CSCRS researchers consistently translate research knowledge into practical interventions and programs that are applied at the local, state, national and international levels.
