In the absence of local evidence on how road attributes affect traffic injuries, India, and other low and middle-income countries (LMICs) are replicating safety treatments used in high-income countries (HICs). However, the traffic environment and injury outcomes in India involve many more pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists than in HICs. As a result, HIC interventions may not be effective in India and could even lead to an increase in deaths and injuries. This project has three specific aims: Aim1 - Identify research priorities for a national program to evaluate how road design affects safety; Aim 2- test a method for evaluating road designs and develop guidelines for evaluation research and Aim 3 - Build capacity of researchers and practitioners to improve the safety of road infrastructure.
