Most nations have a significant economic cost as a result of road traffic fatalities and injuries. Road traffic safety improvements are expected to reduce the number of injuries and deaths, lower accident costs, increase traffic flow levels of service, and develop sustainable transportation paradigms.

According to global statistics, road transportation (passenger and freight) is the most deadly method of transportation in terms of human lives lost and associated expenses. Road safety is a concern on a national, regional, and global scale. Despite extensive efforts, road accidents continue to inflict significant economic and social consequences in Jordan and worldwide.

Given the number and seriousness of traffic-related incidents in Jordan and the MENA area as a whole, the RSCE has every chance of becoming a significant hub for traffic safety research and training. The RSCE is intended to be a well-connected house of expertise for conducting traffic safety research and training, as well as providing policy and advice to decision-makers. The center will benefit from strong collaboration with universities and institutions in Germany and EU member states. With strong collaboration with its local and international partners, the RSCE will generate, exchange, and promote the necessary knowledge and research in safer mobility, a vital component of sustainable transportation. The RSCE strives to be a well-known multidisciplinary research center for safer transportation in the MENA area.

The RSCE will spearhead efforts to better understand all aspects of road accidents and to develop far-reaching safety programs aimed at reducing the occurrence of traffic accidents.

The RSCE strives to be a global leader in road traffic safety and safer transportation. The RSCE will develop and disseminate cutting-edge information and sophisticated approaches for safer transportation. The RSCE will generate knowledge and value for local, regional, and global communities through collaboration and networking with German universities, road traffic safety centers in EU member states, and local partners. RSCE seeks to conduct multidisciplinary, cutting-edge research. Driver driving behavior, accident prevention strategies and automated driving paradigms, safety performance monitoring and evaluation, child passenger safety, distracted driving, vehicle safety features in the era of automated driving, and pedestrian infrastructure and behavior are all potential research topics. The RSCE will monitor and simulate drivers' driving behavior and use of safety measures using naturalistic driving data. I am thrilled to work with a diverse group of researchers, institutions, and politicians to achieve the goals and objectives of the RSCE.
