NHTSA works to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce economic costs due to road traffic crashes, through education, research, safety standards, and enforcement due to motor vehicle crashes. We do this by advancing innovations that make vehicles safer and by encouraging Americans to make safer choices when they drive, ride and walk. Our goal: An America free from deaths and injuries in motor vehicle-related crashes. Our commitment to safety means including all who share the road - drivers, cyclists and pedestrians alike. And it means harnessing the skills and knowledge of a talented and diverse workforce. America is at its best when it draws upon the talents of Americans of all backgrounds.
