Road traffic collisions kill about 1.2 million people around the world every year but they are largely neglected as a health and development issue, perhaps because they are still viewed by many as being beyond human control. Efforts to prevent road traffic injuries are hampered by a lack of human capacity. Policy-makers, researchers and practitioners need information on effective prevention measure and on how to develop, implement and evaluate such interventions. There is a need to train more specialists in road traffic injury prevention in order to address the growing problem of road traffic

Traffic crashes kill or injure millions of people each year. High-quality traffic safety data is vital to allocate resources and target programs as the National Highway Traffic Safety Admin, (NHTSA) and states work to improve traffic safety through data-driven approaches. To qualify for federal funding, states must submit plans which include fatality and crash data analyses to identify areas for improvement. This report provides information on: (1) the extent to which state traffic safety data systems meet NHTSA performance measures for assessing the quality of data systems; and (2) progress s

Each day, the FAA controls the take-offs, landings, and flights of over 50,000 aircraft. To accomplish this mission safely and efficiently, FAA must have a sufficient number of adequately trained air traffic controllers working at its air traffic control facilities. Over the next decade, FAA will need to hire and train nearly 17,000 controllers to replace over 15,000 current controllers, most of whom will be retiring. This massive hiring effort will occur as FAA begins to implement the next generation air transportation system, which will integrate new technologies and procedures into air traf

Here are the results of an audit of the FAAżs mgmt. and maint. of air traffic control facilities. The FAA has invested billions of dollars in new equipment for handling increasingly higher levels of air traffic in more complex airspace. However, the facilities that house those systems are deteriorating. As FAA begins implementing plans for the Next Generation Air Transp. System, it will be critical to determine the type and number of facilities that will be needed to support the envisioned architecture. This audit determined if FAA has: (1) developed and implemented a comprehensive strategy t

In 1981, the FAA began a program to modernize the air traffic control (ATC) system by replacing aging equipment & accommodating predicted growth in air traffic. It has had difficulty for more than two decades in meeting cost, schedule, & performance targets. The performance-based Air Traffic Org. (ATO) was created in 2004 to improve the management of the modernization effort. In Oct. 2004, a panel discussed the factors that have affected FAA's ability to acquire new ATC systems. They identified steps that FAA's ATO could take in the short term to address these factors, as well as longer term s
