Transportation Safety (on CD-ROM)

The Transportation Safety CD-ROM contains Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) from the US Department of transportation, prepared by the US Government's National Technical Information Service (NTIS). The CD also includes search and retrieval software.

This Transportation Safety CD-ROM is the third in the US State and Metropolitan Analysis for Regional Transportation (SMART) series. The Transportation Safety CD-ROM offers access to over 200 safety-related reports, accident studies, award-winning community programmes, programme planners, data sets, and youth programmes collected from US metropolitan planning organisations, state departments of transportation, the US federal government, and professional associations.

A sample of safety topics includes: rail; roadway; motor vehicles; transit; bicycle and pedestrian safety; and occupant protection.

If a user has an internal browser, this CD-ROM links the user to the US National Transportation Library offering access to new safety materials and more than 1,500 transportation documents.

The SMART Project involves gathering the collective wisdom of the transportation planning community and making the materials generated from a variety of sources easy to use and share. Co-operating US agencies include the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Transit Administration, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and transportation planners from around the USA. Users are encouraged to forward their own materials to BTS to place online in the National Transportation Library, or to include in an upcoming CD-ROM.
