About Transportation

Despite major progress in the battle against driving under the influence, significant increases in the use of occupant restraints, and greater attention to other safe driving behaviors, motor vehicle crashes continue to take the lives of far too many of our citizens. The latest crash data available shows 32,719 people killed on our nation’s highways in 2013. MDAC’s research experts in transit, statistics, data analysis and collection, and relevant presentations offer practical information regarding effective policy and making better strategic and tactical decisions. Our methodologies are proven to provide innovative solutions in both the public and private sector.
