TREDS delivers education and training programs to improve roadway safety and conducts research to inform public policy. We are located at the UC San Diego in the School of Medicine in the Qualcomm Institute.


TREDS provides training curricula for health professionals and law enforcement, as well as education for the general public. Topics include aging road users, medical conditions that affect driving, distracted driving, pedestrian safety, and driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs (DUID).


TREDS research is disseminated at conference presentations and through journal publications. Links related to driving safety are provided, along with a tool to locate occupational therapists in California who can assist with driver evaluations.


TREDS hosts free, virtual Train-the-Trainer workshops that address critical traffic safety issues.

There are no upcoming workshop dates. If you are interested in a Train-the-Trainer program, please contact TREDS – treds@ucsd.edu
