Traffic Safety Information Depot

The University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Transportation Research Center (UNLV-TRC) has conducted several traffic safety related research projects. The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored Pedestrian Safety Project, RTC sponsored Development of A Safety Analysis System, Nevada Department of Transportation sponsored Safety Analysis of Rumble Strips Project, and Nevada Office of Traffic Safety Sponsored Occupant Protection Surveys, to name a few. UNLV Safe Community Partnership conduct several education and enforcement campaigns, aimed at occupant protection for children and teenagers, alternate mode transportation for elderly, safe driving, etc. Some of these programs were great success, whereas some others were not as effective. The purpose of this project is to initiate an effort to document details of these programs, success/failure of these programs, and lessons learned from these. This would help other organizations/agencies across the nation and globe to learn from our experiences.
