We are a charitable road safety research institute studying unsafe behaviours & related risks affecting all road users.
The Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) works with governments, communities, industries, & road safety organizations. Our research influences legislation, programs, policies, enforcement, health, education, & training across sectors.
Donations help us share technical expertise with communities & give Canadians access to free educational tools & resources to inspire safer choices.
Road Safety Topics
We research different types of people who use roads & behaviours that create risk to educate road users & implement prevention strategies. Explore these topics to learn more about behaviour, risk & ways to stay safe.
Road safety problems are local.
This project helps unite diverse stakeholders in a community to assess top priorities & develop a strategic plan to make roads safer.
