Preventing Accidents

As the most effective strategy for improving safety is to prevent accidents from occurring at all, the Volpe Center applies a broad range of research techniques and capabilities to determine causes and consequences of accidents and to identify, assess, and safely deploy countermeasures. The Volpe Center's systems approach can help ensure that safety interventions are innovative, yet practical and sustainable. This report highlights selected examples of Volpe's accident prevention work that improve the safety of motor vehicles, rail, transit, and aviation.
