Traffic Injury Research Foundation, USA Inc.

The knowledge source for safe driving



Everyone has the power to make roads safer.

We all care about the safety of our family and friends, our co-workers, our communities and our fellow Americans. We share a common goal to make sure everyone gets home safely every day.

In fact, safe roads are a fundamental component of emergency preparedness plans and road crashes affect all of us by:

  • Depleting limited supplies and eroding resources which are essential for the sustained delivery of life-saving health care services in times of emergency.
  • Threatening the ability of health care workers to meet the needs of our loved ones by putting them at risk as they travel to and from work.
  • Jeopardizing supply chains which provide Americans with food and other necessities when they need it most.
  • Exposing essential service workers to risk while they are on the job maintaining and repairing utilities and protecting the security and operations of IT networks.
  • Endangering government workers conducting urgent business and delaying the implementation of programs and policies to protect all Americans.
