Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program

FROM: Christopher J. Hedges
Director, Cooperative Research Programs
Transportation Research Board
SUBJECT: Potential Research Topics for the Fiscal Year 2022
Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program Due by
February 26, 2021
The purpose of this announcement is to solicit problem statements identifying
research needs for the Behavioral Traffic Safety Cooperative Research Program (BTSCRP)
Fiscal Year 2022 Program. These are not proposals to conduct the research but are used to
identify potential research needs and form the basis for selection of the annual BTSCRP
research program. The format for problem statements is short and concise. Most are 1-3
pages in length using the enclosed research problem statement outline.
The BTSCRP is a forum for coordinated and collaborative research to address
issues integral to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and traffic safety professionals at all levels of
government and the private sector. BTSCRP provides practical, ready-to-implement
solutions to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce costs of road traffic crashes
associated with unsafe behaviors. BTSCRP is a partnership between GHSA, NHTSA, and the
Transportation Research Board (TRB).
The BTSCRP undertakes research for any behavioral issue faced by traffic
safety stakeholders. Particular emphasis areas are alcohol-impaired driving, autonomous
vehicles, bicyclists and pedestrians, child passenger safety, distracted driving, drowsy
driving, drug-impaired driving, law enforcement, mature drivers, motorcyclist safety, seat
belts, speed and red light cameras, speeding and aggressive driving, teen driver safety,
and traffic records. Anyone can write or contribute to preparing a problem statement.
A research problem statement outline is enclosed, along with guidance for
writing successful problem statements. The deadline for submitting problems for
consideration in the FY 2022 research program is February 26, 2021. Problem statements
may be submitted by email to BTSCRP@NAS.EDU<mailto:BTSCRP@NAS.EDU> and it is
preferred that the problem statement be sent as an attachment to the e-mail message in
Microsoft Word format.
The GHSA Executive Board will select the research problem statements for the
FY 2022 program in June 2021. For problems they select, requests for proposals will be
issued, and contractors will be selected through a competitive process.
Thank you very much for your consideration. Your willingness to participate
in the identification of relevant behavioral traffic safety topics is a key element of a
successful stakeholder-driven BTSCRP. Should you have any questions or need additional
information, please feel free to contact William C. Rogers, Senior Program Officer,
BTSCRP, at 202-334-1621 or email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>.
