AUDIO: Improving safety with driver behavior data


In this clip from latest episode of the Thinking Transportation podcast Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) assistant research scientist Michael Martin discusses how collecting data and analyzing driver behavior is more important for improving road safety than highway design. This is against a backdrop of large vehicle collisions in and around the giant West Texas oil patch, that in recent years have been alarmingly frequent and serious.
