This study estimated the risk of severe injury or death for pedestrians in the United States using data from a federal study of crashes that occurred in the United States in years 1994 - 1998 and involved a pedestrian struck by a forward-moving car, light truck, van, or sport utility vehicle.
The purpose of this study was to increase our understanding of Traffic Safety Culture (TSC) by identifying its constituent components.

This study presents new estimates of the prevalence of drowsy drivers on U.S. roads using data from a nationally-representative survey of drivers, and examines the role of drowsy driving in a nationally-representative sample of crashes.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers in the United States. In an effort to reduce crashes and fatalities among young drivers, nearly all states have implemented graduated driver licensing (GDL) systems.
