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.

Coffee & Conversation: A Safe Systems Exploration of Transportation

Next week CSCRS will launch Coffee and Conversation, a UNC-Chapel Hill dialogue series featuring experts in public health, transportation safety and engineering. The first discussion, an introduction to safe systems, will be held Tuesday morning, January 23 in the Chapin Reading Room, 211 New East.
