The Roadway Safety Institute was established in late 2013 to conduct research focused on user-centered transportation safety systems.
Driven by the goal of preventing crashes to reduce fatalities and life-changing injuries, the Institute conducts research on regional and national issues related to traffic safety systems and high-risk road users.
The Institute is built on the strong foundation of safety-related research, education, and outreach conducted at the University of Minnesota’s Intelligent Transportation Systems Institute and Center for Transportation Studies as well as at consortium members 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 University Transportation Center for USDOT Region 5, which Includes Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
