California has long been a center of motorcycling and is home to much of the motorcycle industry. In fact, the state has more motorcyclists than any other US state. There are more than 800,000 registered motorcycles in the state, followed by 550,000 in Florida and 445,000 in Texas. As a consequence, California is also a leader in motorcycle collision-related deaths each year. Read the full California Motorcycle Fact Sheet to explore our findings.

COURSE ANNOUNCEMENT: Traffic Safety and Injury Control (CE265), Spring 2017

Traffic Safety & Injury Control course will be offered this Spring semester. The course will examine principles of engineering and behavioral science relevant to preventing traffic collisions and subsequent injury. Given the rapid emergence of technology—self-driving vehicles, crash avoidance systems, vehicle-infrastructure integration—the course will have a two-week module on the implications for safety (for all modes) of these emerging technologies. 

We just released a quarterly research brief featuring newly published research related to bicycle and pedestrian issues.
Please share and distribute to your traffic safety partners.
