Quantifying Vermont Transportation Safety Factors

Researchers at the Transportation Research Center (TRC) are teaming up with state officials to address key issues in the Agency of Transportation's "Strategic Highway Safety Plan." This project focuses on the following emphasis areas: 1)  keeping vehicles from running off the roadway; 2)  safety of young drivers (under age 21); and 3)  lack of alertness due to fatigue, in-vehicle distractions and other driver errors. The TRC will take the lead in utilizing the Vermont crash database to provide in-depth analysis for policy-makers attempting cost-effective solutions for reducing crashes in the state.
