CSCRS Vision Zero & Safe System Research Highlighted in UTC Spotlight
The April 2022 edition of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) UTC Spotlight newsletter highlighted the extensive research that the Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety (CSCRS) has conducted on Vision Zero plans and how to support them using the Safe System approach to road safety in a new article, "Achieving the Vision of Zero Roadway Deaths Through a Safe System Approach."
The UTC Spotlight noted some examples of how CSCRS research connects Vision Zero with the Safe System approach, including the following projects and resources:
- Strengthening Existing and Facilitating New Vision Zero Plans
- Guide to Developing a Vision Zero Plan
- U.S. Vision Zero Implementation
- Integrating systems thinking tools into Vision Zero and Safe System approaches
About the CSCRS
The Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety (CSCRS), is a U.S. Department of Transportation-funded National University Transportation Center led by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Highway Safety Research Center.
CSCRS is one of five national University Transportation Centers announced in November 2016. The Center unites leading university transportation research, planning, public health, data science and engineering programs with the mission to create and exchange knowledge to advance transportation safety through a multidisciplinary, Safe Systems approach.
The UC Berkeley team, led by SafeTREC Co-Director Offer Grembek, is one of five university consortium members, along with the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, Duke University, Florida Atlantic University and University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
