In Canada, up to 30% of intersection related crashes are fatal and approximately 40% of crashes cause serious injuries. There is an urgent need to continuously improve the design and operation of urban intersections to reduce vehicle crashes.

CRISP is always looking for innovative approaches to improving traffic safety. In line with this thinking, CRISP members believe that assisting university students focus on intersection safety and design is an important component of enhancing traffic safety. By supporting at the university level, CRISP hopes it will encourage younger people to embrace the safety culture they promote.
