Vehicle crashes cause more injuries and casualties than any natural or man-made hazard in most countries around the world. To study traffic crashes and injury risk and prevention strategy under normal, and even adverse, conditions has become a long-term endeavor and commitment of society. To tackle these issues, researchers have been working on crash data, physical simulations, and cutting-edge experimental studies, by deciphering the complex interactions between people, environment, vehicles, and transportation infrastructures. With these exciting progresses, advanced technology has been employed in developing the next generation of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS).
This Special Issue aims to report on recent advances in interdisciplinary research related to understanding associated risks, crash avoidance, and the improvement of traffic safety and injury prevention in transportation networks around the world. It is open to any subject area of the related theme, and research articles encompassing multiple fields, such as traffic engineering, infrastructure engineering, hazard modeling and mitigation, public health, psychology, policy-making and management, etc., are particularly welcome. The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is indexed by SCI-E, PubMed, and other databases.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
