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).

This is a slide presentation made by SafeTREC researchers to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) Bicycle Task Force about a plan they developed to collect data on pedestrian infrastructure and volume in a way that it can be incorporated into the Caltrans TASAS database for the state highway system so that it can be easily accessed by Caltrans staff for planning and engineering purposes. A possible next step would be to do the same for bicycle infrastructure and volume data.
