SafeTREC Webinars

Starting October 26, 2009, the Traffic Safety Center has a new name, SafeTREC, the Safe Transportation Research and Education Center.

Our new name more accurately reflects the manner in which our mission has grown since our founding nearly 10 years ago to encompass safety and travel risk in a multi-modal transportation system; a robust and diverse research agenda across multiple disciplines; and development and enhancement of curriculum, training, and outreach on the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as for professionals and members of the community.

The UC Berkeley Safe Transportation Research & Education Center (SafeTREC) aims to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries in California through multi-disciplinary collaboration in education, research, and outreach. SafeTREC faculty, staff, and associates conduct a wide range of research and technical assistance, including:

  • human factors in crashes involving vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists;
  • applications of intelligent intersection collision warning and control systems;
  • evaluation of traffic safety interventions;
  • community involvement in the implementation of diverse projects from pedestrian safety to child passenger safety;
  • data analysis on injury prevention/traffic safety problems in California;
  • traffic safety issues among specific populations, including older drivers and communities of color.

In addition, SafeTREC is sponsoring multidisciplinary courses on injury prevention and traffic safety in the School of Public Health and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley and has developed partnerships with local governments, academic institutions, non-profit organizations, and advocacy groups statewide to look at a variety of traffic safety issues facing communities in California.
