Safe Driving & Safer Crosswalks.

State funding support for world-class public universities, like Berkeley, the University of Michigan and the University of Virginia has been reduced as low as zero to 20%.  The top tier public universities learned many years ago it was necessary for them to become research universities, which are profit centers, to fund their operations.  UNLV and UNR are far behind on the curve in becoming self-sustaining.  Both must develop as world renowned research universities to earn income to survive and succeed.

Today Jim discusses the many attributes and plans of UNR and UNLV to make both universities competitive with the other world-class U.S. public universities.

The Transportation Research Center combines research and outreach to make streets safer for both drivers and pedestrians. Students and staff work with regional agencies to improve traffic flow and partner with schools to promote safe driving and safer crosswalks.

  1. The TRC has a great place to experiment. I make my living driving all over the county and even after growing up in NYC, Las Vegas has the worst drivers I have ever seen.
