Welcome to the Safe Transportation Research and Education Center

We are part of the University of California, Berkeley, affiliated with the School of Public Health and the Institute of Transportation Studies, with additional partnerships with the Department of City and Regional Planning, Public Policy and Transportation Engineering.

Our research is carried out by faculty at UC Berkeley with assistance from post-doctoral scholars, research staff, and graduate student researchers. We also help the California Office of Traffic Safety administer its Sobriety Checkpoint Program and its Community Pedestrian Safety Workshops and support various safety initiatives from other California agencies, Including the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).
