Roadway Safety Institute

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.

Newsletter coming soon

The Roadway Safety Institute's new quarterly electronic newsletter will highlight research, education, and technology transfer initiatives at the Institute. The first issue will be published in May 2014.

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 Office of the Assistant Secretary for Research and Technology (OST-R) to conduct a multidisciplinary program of transportation research, education, and technology transfer in the area of safety.
