Welcome to the Web site for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The site has valuable information and statistics to help you. As you use the site, you will learn the many ways NHTSA works to reduce deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes.

The Web site is designed to make it easy for you to find the information you seek about the NHTSA. You can scan through pages organized by three major sections. Vehicles and Equipment has information on safety problems and issues, testing results, regulations and standards, and research and development. Traffic Safety and Vehicle Occupants has information on injury protection, traffic safety, driver performance, and crashes. General Information is your link to Agency accomplishments, news, speeches, announcements, and more. Of course, you are welcome to check out the Hot at NHTSA section for the latest postings.

The NHTSA, a part of the Department of Transportation (DOT), is headquartered in Washington, D.C., with regional offices located across the United States. The NHTSA works closely with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), also a part of the Department of Transportation, to promote motor carrier safety. For information on motor carrier safety, visit FMCSA's Web site.

Thank you for visiting the NHTSA Web site. And please remember to buckle up and drive safely.
