It's time for a fresh approach.
Our mission is to create and exchange knowledge to advance
transportation safety through a multidisciplinary, systems-based approach.

Learn about the cutting-edge research, tools, data, and resources—compatible with a systems-based approach—we are developing to increase understanding about road safety issues.


Explore how we are engaging and training a growing body of students and future leaders in road safety principles and systems-based approaches and methods.


Discover our efforts to ensure that systems-based principles are shared, understood, and adopted by traffic safety professionals and stakeholders.

A Venn diagram showing how CSCRS represents the intersection of the principles Safe Systems and Systems Science. Safe Systems principles include adapt to human behavior, manage energy transfer, treat safety as foundation for all interventions, and foster shared vision and coordinated action. Systems Science principles include apply tools to manage complexity, explore system assumptions and interactions, and provide framework for considering policies and engaging stakeholders.CSCRS Safe Systems Summer Learning Series
