The mission of the Automotive Safety Program is to reduce injuries and fatalities resulting from motor vehicle crashes in Indiana.
Automotive Safety Program at Riley Hospital for Children,
Indiana University School of Medicine, was founded
in 1981 by Dr. Marilyn Bull. Funded by the Governor's Council on Impaired & Dangerous Driving, the program directs child passenger safety research, education, and training in the state of Indiana.
In addition, the Automotive Safety Program
has long been a national leader and expert in transportation
of children with special health care needs.
In 1997, The Automotive Safety Program was awarded
additional grant monies from the Governor's Council
on Impaired and Dangerous Driving to establish the
