SafeTREC’s mission is the reduction of transportation-related injuries and fatalities through multidisciplinary collaboration in education, research, and outreach. Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for people aged 1 to 34 in the U.S.—and a major cause of minor and debilitating injuries for all age groups. The center’s aim is to strengthen the capability of state, county, and local governments, academic institutions, and local community organizations to enhance traffic safety through research, curriculum and material development, outreach, and training for professionals and students.
