Research Areas: Criminal Justice, Public Safety

 Designing and implementing effective traffic safety policies requires data-driven analysis of traffic collisions. To help in the policy-making process, the Indiana University Center for Urban Policy and the Environment (CUPE) and Center for Criminal Justice Research (CCJR) is collaborating with the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute (ICJI) to analyze data from the Vehicle Crash Records System database maintained by the Indiana State Police. Research findings have been summarized in a series of fact sheets on various aspects of traffic collisions, including alcohol-related crashes, speeding, children, motorcycles, light trucks, large trucks, occupant protection, and young drivers. Portions of the content in those reports and in this Crash Fact Book are based on guidelines provided by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
