Student Paper - Vehicle Safety Enhancement Award
Each year, in conjunction with its annual conference, the Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals (CARSP) holds a competition for the best student papers. For the up-coming conference an additional award is being offered to student papers that use Canadian motor vehicle collision data and/or Canadian motor vehicle crash test data to promote enhanced vehicle safety.
To be eligible for this award, papers must be co-authored by a student registered at a Canadian university and submitted for consideration for inclusion in the CARSP Conference. The research must use Canadian motor-vehicle collision and/or crash test data to identify potential improvements in motor vehicle safety.
