GHSA frequently publishes reports to help its members and partners navigate a variety of pressing highway safety issues.
GHSA's report, "High-Risk Impaired Drivers: Combating a Critical Threat," focuses on the challenges and opportunities associated with the high-risk impaired driver — a person who lacks the restraint or self-control to resist driving impaired.
This report by NHTSA and GHSA's National Cooperative Research and Evaluation Program (NCREP) examines why riders choose to wear — or not wear — high-visibility gear. Through a focus group of motorcycle riders, the report finds that while most participants did not regularly wear such gear, those who did reported doing so after having been in a crash with a motor vehicle, or personally knowing another rider who had been in such a crash.
As traffic crashes remain the leading cause of death for teens and young adults, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) "Peer-to-Peer Teen Traffic Safety Program Guide," prepared by GHSA, examines the components of successful peer-to-peer programs.
GHSA's latest spotlight report, "Speeding Away from Zero: Rethinking a Forgotten Traffic Safety Challenge," highlights excessive vehicle speed as a persistent contributor to motor vehicle fatalities, accounting for nearly a third of traffic deaths each year. The report takes a fresh look at this challenge, outlining the latest research, programming and countermeasures to address speeding.
