Coordination of Safety Research

In response to the problem of 42,000 annual deaths from highway crashes, the R & T Forum Partnership created a National Highway Safety Research Agenda. In addition to a research agenda, a process to coordinate ongoing and planned safety research on a national scale was proposed. The purpose of this coordination proposal was to achieve greater research efficiency, identify research gaps and eliminate duplication. The Research Agenda consists of eight safety themes. One of those themes, Highway Infrastructure Safety was chosen to pilot-test the proposed coordination process.
