There may not be simple answers to questions about the intersection of automotive technology and human factors, especially when tragic losses have occurred, but it is critical for there to be an intelligent exchange of ideas among the experts on all sides of the subject.

Edmunds' Safety Conference: Truly Safe? Debunking Myths and Crafting Effective Policies for Car Safety occurred on May 24, 2011 in Washington, DC and engaged some of the country's best thinkers in a constructive discourse that is influencing policy and product development, and making our roads safer. Business leaders, safety advocates, government representatives and academic innovators brought their well-informed perspectives to this unique forum where policymakers broadened their exposure to the issues that are truly at hand.

This Web site is the legacy of the conference, and will continue to grow with new traffic safety information and insights from thought leaders — some with extensive traffic safety experience, and others with outside expertise that enriches the conversation.
