Among the unfortunate by-products of transportation are the numerous injuries and losses of life that are incurred each year. Since 94% of the transportation fatalities in the U.S. are highway-related, the course emphasizes motor vehicle travel. Other modes of transport and safety-related issues are discussed, as well. The purpose of this course is to encourage the student to consider the safety implications of both existing and new transportation projects, to appreciate the numbers of injuries and fatalities experienced on transportation facilities, to engage in the analysis of safety statistics, and to begin to think about mitigating strategies and treatments.
