Eric Austin, Ph.D., and Holly Watson with the Department of Political Science along with Nicholas Ward, Ph.D., Jay Otto, M.S., and Kelly Green, M.P.A., with the Center for Health and Safety culture at Montana State University have published an article in Frontiers in Future Transportation Journal’s special edition on Vision Zero. This article describes a systematic analysis of published, peer-reviewed evaluations of culture-based interventions designed to enhance traffic safety, safe workplaces, and effective practices to build a clearer picture of the robustness of current models and evaluation designs. In addition to building an understanding of the current field of evaluation in culture-based interventions, the article begins examining the relationship between safe systems and traffic safety culture.
