Advancing roadway safety with user-centered solutions
The Roadway Safety Institute is a regional University Transportation Center established in 2013 that conducts research focused on user-centered transportation safety systems.
Driven by the goal of preventing crashes to reduce fatalities and life-changing injuries, the Institute will conduct research on regional issues related to traffic safety system approaches and high-risk road users.
The Institute is a collaboration between the University of Minnesota, the University of Akron, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and Western Michigan University.
The Roadway Safety Institute is the Region 5 University Transportation Center (UTC). The Center was established in 2013 based on an award from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) to conduct a multidisciplinary program of transportation research, education, and technology transfer in the area of safety.
