Road safety is an issue of global concern. Our Mission is to make an international impact on transport, occupational and community safety by conducting high-quality research, education and advocacy.
CARRS-Q is committed to the United Nations Decade of Action for Road Safety and to participating internationally in efforts to promote road safety and reduce road fatalities and injuries through our research.
